Is "Linux spokeslady" a job? Can I do that job?
I'm realizing recently just how much I miss getting on a stage in front of hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of people and talking about something. This was something about my last "real job" that I loved, and I didn't realize how much I'd miss it until recently.
Some people get stage fright, but for me, it's about the happiest I get.
@vkc Having just discovered your YouTube channel, I just wanted to say thanks for making something both genuinely funny and entertaining, but also accessible. So much of the content out there is either patronisingly oversimplified or super gatekeepery, and I really appreciate the casual "Linux mom" tone!
@vkc I think they usually call them evangelists, for whatever reason, and yeah, it's a real job. :) I googled for "Linux Evangelist" and mostly got jokes about it, so I don't know if it's often a thing for Linux, although maybe for particular distros. But "Microsoft Evangelist" or "Apple Evangelist" and so on are real. I know Red Hat has "Technology Evangelist"s, although whether those are paid positions, I'm not sure.
