Linus acknowledging his toxic behavior is a step in the right direction. I'm glad he's finally realizing what people (especially marginalized people) have been telling him, at great personal cost to themselves, for *years.*

While he's taking time to work on himself, I hope the Linux and open-source communities do likewise, and interrogate why we let his toxic behavior damage our community for so long.

How many kind, empathetic engineers with genius-level skill and revolutionary ideas did we lose because they were driven out by the culture of abuse and bullying that Linus promoted and exemplified?

People talk about how Linus is a genius like his toxic, abusive behavior was the price of benefitting from his genius.

I can't help wondering how many better operating systems and better version control systems withered in the minds of better engineers than Linus, because open source's toxic culture pushed them out.

shit, i JUST got new business cards that say "software engineer"

Related: I updated my resume, because I'm a little worried about some of the org changes at work lately. It's available at zacanger.com/cv as html, json, and plain text (change the 'Accept' header). I'm not _actively_ looking, but kinda just getting ready, just in case.

(actual title pending, but I'm gonna push for Infrastructure Engineer)

As of today I am no longer a Software Engineer, I am a DevOp™
