Gates and Jobs to Share Stage at WSJ's No-Holds Barred Tech Conf

Illustration for article titled Gates and Jobs to Share Stage at WSJs No-Holds Barred Tech Conf

Mark your calendars folks, cause on May 30th hell is gonna freeze over. That day Microsoft hotshot Bill Gates will sit down with his holyness Steve Jobs to talk tech at the WSJ's D5: All Things Digital Conference, an "unscripted" and "informal" gathering of the tech world's big shots. And sitting in between the two giants drilling them with questions will be none other than the WSJ's, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, both co-hosts and co-founders of the conference. The conf will take place in Cali's Four Seasons Hotel Aviara, half an hour north of San Diego (where else would you hold an informal tech conference). So what do you think, guys, will Jobs and Gates go at it from the start? Will Mossberg have enough fastballs to throw their way? This is sounding more and more like the tech world's pay-per view event of the year.

Dear Mr. Gates;

Oh, dear Lord, Bill, please don't do this to yourself. Jobs will absolutely SLAUGHTER you up there.

I'll give you mad props where they're due any day; but coolness, charisma, and stage presence are definitely not your strong points. Jobs is smooth as silk. The RDF will be in full force. Mossberg is an Apple fan. You have no chance to survive make your time.

In fact, I can't believe either of you would agree to this, especially Steve, whose company totally has the halo right now. Maybe he's just had enough of your lies, and wants the chance to answer, but the whole thing's kinda ridiculous.

Don't do it... it's a trap.
