I had a weird experience at FOSDEM where someone I've known for a while said "I had no idea you were famous!" Kind of a weird thing to hear, I don't think of myself as particularly "famous". I don't even have a wikipedia page!

I tend to think that these days, the amount I'm known is at a pretty good level. I'm not interested in fame, just enough visibility to be able to push forward some things I care about in the world.

I also think *wanting* to be "famous" is, well, probably dangerous...


@cwebber unwikipediaed represent!

I was recognised on public transportation once, decided fame was not my thing.

@joeyh @cwebber having people buy you free beers at conferences is nice but I'd be fine with only being recognized at conferences
