Linus Torvalds transformed technology twice — first with the Linux kernel, which helps power the Internet, and again with Git, the source code management system used by developers worldwide. In a rare interview with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Torvalds discusses with remarkable openness the personality traits that prompted his unique philosophy of work, engineering and life. “I am not a visionary, I’m an engineer,” Torvalds says. “I’m perfectly happy with all the people who are walking around and just staring at the clouds … but I’m looking at the ground, and I want to fix the pothole that’s right in front of me before I fall in.”

I do love using Raspbian, gives me more support than just some Arduino-compatible board like a Linkit-ONE.

Hi. He could have been a multi-billionair, coz' Android is from Linux, so it Tesla's Autopilot.
I hope he will become one someday.

God bless, Revelation 21:4

It's really sad that this man has made so many people's lives 10x easier, along with Dennis Ritchie, Time Berners-lee etc. but society still worships people like Steve Jobs because he made more money and thus was more "Successful".

Great interview. But I want to know, why was the host casually patting Mr. Torvalds in the end? Did the host not realize who he was interviewing? Just because Mr. Torvalds is more than generous enough to be a casual, down to earth personality, is not any reason to treat him casually.
