One small part, a founding part, of what became something with a life all it's own, where unfortunately for him he gets all the credit (and blame) from some folks because they seek a king, leader, messiah figure to raise up on a pedestal (or crucifix). So, to deal with it he stays out of the spotlight for the most part and avoids saying more than needed because the ripples become tidal waves in the minds of the mindless.
Or something like that... Just my reflection from looking at the buzz here and elsewhere on the web about him. Must be hard to be pinned down as The One when you were clearly just another participant who happened to be there when they were creating something.
