I am not a visionary. I’m an engineer – Linus Torvalds

If you are into Computers and haven’t heard of Linus Torvalds then you better do some lookup. To start with he gave us Linux and to add icing to the cake he created Git.

Recently I heard him talk in a TED interview and thought of sharing it. It’s a talk worth listening to. He is not a people’s person and likes to work in his quiet office, all by himself.

The part which sounded really interesting was his take on Visionaries and why he identified more with Edison than with Tesla.

I am not a visionary. I do not have a five-year plan, I don’t have a moon shot. I’m an engineer.

Listen him share his opinions.
