When Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, kicked off the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference with her keynote today, she shared a fascinating story about her youth and her first love.
She fell in love in high school. Hard.
It was an all-consuming love, changing how she felt about her life, what she did, and how she lived.
However, her husband Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, is not fond of this story from her high school years.
