Bill Gates Begins "Nefarious World Domination Plot, Phase One", BBC Buries Lede

From the Eccentric_Billionaire++ department:

The 2009 TED talks are going on this week.  Apparently, during his talk on fighting malaria, Bill Gates unleashed a jar full of mosquitoes genetically engineered to implant nano-bots in their victims.  Gates laughed maniacally and revealed the details of his plot, phase one of which involves the nano-bots infecting their hosts with a fanatical devotion to Windows Vista.

J/K!  As the BBC reports, Gates told his audience that there's no reason only poor people should have to get malaria.  Thankfully, Gates' mosquitoes were pre-screened for malaria.  TED curator Chris Anderson handed news agencies the lede on a silver platter:

TED curator Chris Anderson quipped that when a video of the talk is posted on its website it would be headlined "Gates releases more bugs into the world."
