Bill Gates, philanthropist and founder of Microsoft, was on social networking news site Reddit to be part of an "Ask Me Anything" chat.

Bill Gates, philanthropist and founder of Microsoft, was on social networking news site Reddit Monday morning to be part of an "Ask Me Anything" chat. 

The Medina resident, reknowned for his philathropic projects and for making Redmond-based Microsoft among the most successful software companies in the world, answered a wide range of questions about software, technology, attitudes toward money and politics.

User indrora asked: "What's your worst fear for the future of the world?"

Gates answered:

Hopefully we won't have terrorists using nuclear weapons or biological weapons. We should make sure that stays hard.

I am disappointed more isn't being done to reduce carbon emissions. Governments need to spend more on basic energy R&D to make sure we get cheap non-CO2 emitting sources as soon as possible.

Overall I am pretty optimistic. Things are a lot better than they were 200 years ago..
