But he certainly does and for good reason: Many people in the world don't have access to flush toilets and do not have access to basic sanitation services. Gates and his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation this week held the "Reinvent the Toilet Fair," in Seattle, where the man who co-founded software giant Microsoft awarded prizes to teams that came up with the best notion for changing the world's toilet technology."
