Daniel Stenberg Meets the King

Daniel Stenberg created curl, the utility you’ve probably never heard of that, under the hood, is an invaluable part of how the Internet works.

As he described with humility and good humour here, Stenberg was awarded the Polhem Prize for this work.

Beyond the deserved recognition, perhaps the greatest result of the prize is this video wherein he describes what curl is, and how open source works.

I am wondering what vehicle you are thinking of getting in 2020, and why? How long do you think the next one will last?

The reason I ask - I think a car's technology (self driving, and possibly networked together) is really going to change in the next ten years, and a major factor will be its ability to be upgraded.
