Bill Gates came to my university, to give a lecture and a demonstration. His presentation was so full of smug smarm and dishonesty that I ended up joining with the protesters in the audience, shouting, on occasion, anti-Microsoft slogans, and a recurring chant of something like "Give us back our future!" After the main festivities, we cornered Gates in a small classroom; more taunts ensued, and I eventually hit him over the head with a chair.
