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.”
Stories this week:
– Torvalds says he’s not worried about Microsoft
– Archive.org (Internet heroes) add another ~2500 DOS games to their archive
– So, Google Stadia is still a thing. Launches Nov 19
– Microsoft wants to use AI to censor swear words in voice chat, because of course
– Twitter has rules for world leaders, apparently… Who knew?
– Blizzard & China & Apple & Stuff
