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.

I've been amazed by two things related to this over the past few days: (1) the speed at which the article has spread around Twitter, being retweeted by loads of people who think it's a genuine interview, and (2) the number of people who subsequently claim that they were in on the joke all along when they posted/tweeted/linked to it.

Just out of interest, would the person who downvoted this comment care to mention why they did so?
