Early on in his second annual foundation letter, Gates says: "It's been an incredible year and I enjoyed having lots of time to meet with the innovators working on some of the world's most important problems. I got to go out and talk with people making progress in the field, ranging from teachers in North Carolina to health workers fighting polio in India to dairy farmers in Kenya. Seeing the work firsthand reminds me of how urgent the needs are as well as how challenging it is to get all the right pieces to come together. I love my new job and feel lucky to get to focus my time on these problems."
