This week has had both a bunch of good stuff, and some bad stuff too. I met Linus Torvalds ( Founder of Linux to you non geeks ) on Monday. Many a nerd would be jealous of that, and so I feel compelled to tell every nerd I meet about it. The truth is though that he is just a guy, and he wants to be treated as such. Unfortunately for him most people with similar interests don't treat him that way. I was personally invited to an event where people did treat him like a person. I had met many of the people there before. Although I haven't had as many successes as other people there I kinda felt like I was part of the family.
