Microsoft founder and worlds richest man (most months) Bill Gates is set to launch his own personal blog according to speculation in his home town

The report states that Microsoft spokesman Mark Murray would not confirm the rumour, but left open the possibility, saying, “Bill would love to do his own blog at some point in the future, time permitting.” He did however go on to say: “Bill Gates and Microsoft are very enthusiastic about blogging. Bill talked a lot about the power and potential of blogging at the [recent] CEO Summit and the advantages it gives to communicating and sharing information with a wide range of potential audiences.”

Blog Herald view: given the talking up of blogging by Microsoft: looks like Billblog is going to happen.
