Doing it twice

I usually don’t like infographics, because reading a large image full of charts, cartoons and numbers that sometimes doesn’t even matter is boring and time consuming. But from time to time I find some exceptions to this “rule” and this post is about one of them.

Many people don’t have a good impression about Bill Gates, may be because he is one of the wealthiest men in the world or even because he advocates proprietary software (this one is more related with the free software supporters). But the fact is that he once revolutionized the technology world and nowadays he’s working hard to do the same to the whole world.

Since he left Microsoft, what he accomplished trough the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” is amazing and thats the reason why I am posting this infographic here. It shows some of his achievements and numbers about people who benefited from his work. I hope you like:
