How to Become Linus Torvalds (The H)

Over at The H, Glyn Moody looks at Linus Torvalds's management style, its history, and how it can be applied elsewhere. "Now, there is only one Linus, but I believe that general approach is starting to move out into other spheres. In part, that's because adaptations of the open source development methodology — based on a modular, distributed, collaborative development model — are being applied in more and more fields, from content to science and even to government. That approach brings with it a need for a different kind of management: top-down just doesn't work in these circumstances."
