HN is growing and influential - a front page post can drive 10k+ quality eyeballs.

Patio is a public figure here, should unfortunately have some expectation of the glory that comes with pseudo-celeb status for better or for worse given that good comments likely see similar numbers of eyeballs.

For biz guys exposing talent to your network is about the biggest way to give back.

Maybe it's just linkbait for HN, but seems to me like it's written genuinely from the standpoint of exposing a guy that's providing a lot of value to a wider community.
