A Facebook friend (who I don't know personally) is a big shot IT guy who
travels the world.
He has a lot of interesting friends not necessarily in the computer world.

He asked his friends to post something of interest.

Mine was getting into an on-line argument with Nancy Sinatra.


Here is a quote from "Julf" who topped that:


I took Linus Torvalds to his first major UNIX conference and his first
visit to Bell Labs to meet Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson.


I'm quite impressed!

Sure. "Julf" sounded familiar, it seems likely it's Johan Helsingius. I
remember he was quite active in the Finnish sfnet Usenet hierarchy back
when he was also running the anon.penet.fi anonymous remailer in the
mid-90s.

Yep. That's who it was.
