It’s hard to fault a man who dedicates so much time and money to charity work, but it would also be hard to say Bill’s bgC3 digs aren’t a bit overboard. According to rumors from earlier today, Gates is spending some serious dough to ensure whatever it is he’ll be doing behind closed doors at bgC3 is done in style. Sir William has reportedly spent $2.5 million on office furniture from high-end furniture designer B&B Italia alone. Damn! Add to that another $75,000 just for a coffee bar, and you can get a pretty good idea of the kind of office space bgC3 will end up with when all is said and done. Hey, Bill worked hard for all that money and he can spend it however he wants. Suffice it to say whoever Gates chooses to work along side him at his new endeavor is not only going to have access to state of the art gear, but also what should end up being ultra-suave amenities and comfort. Soooooo… Where do we send our resumes?
