Did you know that Mr. Mark Shuttleworth is also a beekeeper?

I recently watched a video on youtube of OSCON 2013 conference.
In the 40 seconds I found something very interesting, Mr. Mark Shuttleworth admitted that one of his hobbies is beekeeping.

Admitted he was a beekeeper--is that like saying he was guilty?
