Did you not do any basic research??? Just putting his name into Google pulls up TONS of information...his Wikipedia page has links to his blog, Google+ page, etc.

Ok. So look up his contact information, and set it up. Again, you have MANY options that are easily found...Google+, LinkedIn, his blog, etc. Pick one.

normally you have to get to 10000 posts before being able to post common questions directly to the lord of linuxes.
for the subcategory "english projects", the bar is set to 100000 (even if the counter resets at 99999 - that's the additional test you have to pass).

...and it's dated four years ago, is titled the "The Rampantly Unofficial Linus Torvalds" page, and is loaded with sarcasm. The Wikipedia page is more current and accurate, and the OP was even directed to his Google+ page.

Hi, I think he lives in Dunthorpe, Oregon, United States. If your within US then maybe you could take a flight or train or drive or if your outside US then taking a direct flight would be best (kayak.com, skyscanner.com) then once you reach in Oregon, go to his office and run like hell till you reach his office and I am sure you will be able to talk to him.

Good Luck, please do let me know if you get a chance to talk.
