You're joking, right? Somebody is a hero, because of 
'sitting down' ?

So, finally, software development and 'hacking'  is 
about 'sitting down' and writing some papers? 
Pretty cool. 

I'd still think that Larry Wall is *much* better example 
of 'the hero' and  'lone hacker'. 


PS. I don't belive Northrup has something. I think 
that the article is a joke. I tried Google. Do you 
have any source of information other than single 
article in linuxgram ?
