Researching material for a lecture on Unix administration, I came across Doug McIlroy, famous for co-inventing diff, Unix pipelining, and other important things.
I found a web page which lists what Doug can do. Some examples:
- Doug McIlroy spawns Init
- Doug McIlroy invented diff to win a bet
- Doug McIlroy supervises the hypervisor
- Doug McIlroy doesn't have an Erdős number; Erdős has a McIlroy number
