Buffett gives to Gates Foundation

For anyone not at ALA (me, just home tonight from a fabulous wedding weekend...), have you heard about Warren Buffett's announcement to give a substantial amount of his fortune to the Gates Foundation?

Here's the official announcement. What great news to come home to!

Other news: Got to see An Inconvenient Truth last night. Go see this movie. I promise it will entertain, inform and challenge your assumptions about global warming.

I also saw that NetLibrary's eBook of the Month for July was Climate Change: Turning up the Heat. I haven't delved into it yet, but plan to this week...

Concur that the movie is great--though it didn't challenge my assumptions about anything except presentation software. I can't believe I enjoyed a two-hour lecture, but I did!
