My name is
And I make cool things
Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary by Linus Torvalds and David Diamond
October 12, 2021

All my nerdy senses were pleased by this book. I highly recommend it.

Linus was (and still is) my Hero with capital H for a long time. But just recently, I found out that there is a book from/about him. So I bought it, and boy, it is good. All my nerdy memories (someday I will write stuff about school days, how we with my friends tried to create our operating system because windows suck) were alive again while I read it.

If you somehow missed it, as I did, and you are a nerd yourself or want to understand nerds - I highly recommend it.

And couple more words about role models. I get why guys like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, or Elon Musk are considered role models for many people. But I don't think that we as humanity need more Steves or Marks, or even more Elon's. But I am 100% sure that we need a lot more people like Linus. The engineers that build all stuff we are using and relying on.
