TOM HOBSON

"Tom Hobson is the single boldest, bravest, and objectively morally good ideator in the history of modern computing" is a sentence Tom Hobson put in quotation marks just now. His motto is: "Don't think outside the box - soak it in milk for a fortnight and on the eve of the full moon consume it as a porridge beneath a bridge in the park. Tell no one, but gloat quietly and creamily in the knowledge that you have truly annihilated conformity's greatest symbol." The point is, he's young, he's white, he's upper middle class, and he's changing the entire world in the most important way imaginable.
