Mr Torvalds was awarded the Computer Pioneer Medal from the IEEE Computer Society. It was all over the news so it was added to Wikidata.
As you may know, there is a lot that needs to be done at Wikidata. The award was made an award. There was no category of past winners so some winners were added to make it look better.
The English article did not mention a 2013 winner; Mr Stephen B. Furber was a winner according to the IEEE website. This information was available on the German article as well.
There are many more winners to add. Not just for Computer Pioneer Medal. There are many more Prime Ministers, Ministers of Transport, of Railways to add. Once all these statements are made, labels have to be added as well.
No reason to be bored.
