um pouco da história do github:
sobre o git curto este artigo, que já passei e repassei pra n amigos nerds, mas vai de novo aqui:
When I tried it, I realized something right away: what made git awesome was actually none of the things Linus had talked about, not really. Those things were more like… symptoms of the underlying awesomeness. Yes, git is fast. Yes, it is distributed. Yes, it is definitely not CVS. Those things are all great, but they miss the point.
What actually matters is that git is a totally new way to operate on data. It changes the game. git has been described as “concept-heavy”, because it does so many things so differently from everything else. After some reflection, I realized that this is far truer than I could see at first. git’s concepts are not only unusual, they’re revolutionary.
