Bill Gates is coming to UC Berkeley today, and if you were not one of the lucky few to get tickets, do not despair.

Gates’ comments will be broadcast live on a number of websites, including one he set up for his swing through colleges in the United States. He’s calling that “The Gates Notes”, (hmmm, no apostrophe), and it has sections on what he is thinking about, what he is learning about, and his travels, among other topics.

Gates will be talking to about 1,800 students at 11:15 am at Zellerbach Hall on the topic of “Finding the best way to make a difference.” UC Berkeley will simulcast his remarks to 2,000 students in a separate hall.

After his visit to Cal, Gates will head off to Stanford, the University of Chicago, Harvard, and MIT.

Catch a webcast here and here.
