Re: Doug Cutting, an open source leader
I spoke a bit with Cutting about the similarities between Linux and Hadoop. He mentioned that he wanted an open source/ consensus model for Hadoop governance. This differs from Linux governance, which he described as a "benevolent dictatorship". This was not a put-down, but simply a matter of differences. Hadoop and Linux both started out as kernels. Limux is universal and Hadoop is getting there.

Doug Cutting, an open source leader
Cutting is a highly respected open source developer and early developer of Hadoop. He has some of the same leadership characteristics as the early Linus Torvalds. Know what is simple and works, what to put in and what to keep out helped get Hadoop off the ground.
