Self-confessed "stalker" Andrew Leonard posts a truly creepy
review of Linus Torvalds' autobiography, "Just for Fun: The Story
of an Accidental Revolutionary":
"After years of lurking in the shadows wherever I could
reasonably expect to see Linus Torvalds in public; after spying on
his workplace, the college from which he graduated and the Helsinki
apartment where he first created Linux; after combing through
countless e-mails preserved on the Web and interviewing his
friends, his father and his employer; after all that, I found
reading his own (coauthored) account of his life to be strangely
"It could be that I'm just jealous of coauthor Diamond. He got
to spend a year drinking beer and sitting in hot tubs with Linus.
He went camping with him and played with his kids. A couple of
years ago, I sent an e-mail to Linus suggesting that we get our
kids together and talk about the history of Linux. He never
responded. I still bear the scars."
