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?
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 ?
