Linux "I was in a coffee shop in Portland, Oregon and happened to spot Linus Torvalds sitting alone at a window table. I asked the creator of the Linux operating system and the Git source code control system if I could join him. Over the next fifteen minutes we talked about programming and programmers." Editor's Note: We've realized it's unclear whether this is a satirical interview or not. We don't know, so YMMV.

Ya, I agree -- It wasn't funny, or enlightening, or... anything else that satire usually is. I'm not sure what it was supposed to be honestly.

I guess humor is sometimes very specific.

I do think that this has been re-tweeted mostly because people thought this was an actual interview. (opinion)
