Awesome and very inspiring. And this is priceless:

  But it wasn't an overnight eureka, and it wasn't intentional. I didn't just walk out of high school, pick up a Ruby book, 
  meet Tom and PJ, then launch the site GitHub.
  Before GitHub came, in chronological order, Spyc, Ozimodo, my ozmm.org tumblelog, ftpd.rb, 
  Choice, Err the Blog, acts_as_textiled, Cheat!, acts_as_cached, Mofo, Subtlety,  
  cache_fu, Sexy Migrations, Gibberish, ginx_config_generator, fixture scenarios builder, Sake, Ambition, and Facebox.

BTW, 'cheat' is pretty sweet. Console hackers should try it.
