The morning opened with Bill Gates giving a talk entitled "The Future of Software". I took pictures of most of the slides. It included a short, humorous videotape (not shown on ZDTV):

After the speech, Charles Vest, President of MIT, announced that Bill and Melinda Gates had donated $20 million towards a new building for LCS, and that MIT voted to name it after him:
