LXer: Ubuntu Shuttleworth: Space nerd, penguin, millionaire - live on The Reg

Published at LXer:

Just as the internet was becoming reality for most of us, Mark Shuttleworth sold his first technology venture - the second largest provider of digital certification, Thawte - to VeriSign for $575m. It was 1999 and he was 26 years old. Next, Shuttleworth paid the Russians $20m to become the first African in space - he flew aboard a Soyuz to visit the International Space Station (ISS). He also founded HBD Venture Capital and The Shuttleworth Foundation.
