Over at Mashable, Bill Gates (yep, that Bill Gates) wrote a post about the importance of recognizing the health risks posed by mosquitoes. These bugs might only be a summertime nuisance for a lot of us, but Gates writes that among the poor, mosquitoes can be deadly. They carry malaria, which kills more than 600,000 people a year, and other diseases, like dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis. To raise awareness about mosquito-borne diseases, Gates is taking a page from Shark Week and holding Mosquito Week at his blog, GatesNotes, all this week.
