Finnish software innovator Linus Torvalds more interested in philosphy than business

Author: JT Smith

From Helsingin Sanomat: "
"Silicon Valley is going through such a bad hangover after
the fall in stock prices, that the only thing that people are
looking at is the bottom of their toilet bowls", says Linus
Torvalds, developer of the Linux computer operating
system. Torvalds was speaking in Helsinki on Wednesday
at a seminar on the information society.
Although he was supposed to give his assessment of
what technological developments looked like as seen from
California's Silicon Valley, Torvalds focused instead on
more abstract, at times philosophical questions."
