I bump into tech folks often these days who have the word "Evangelist" in their title, or even "Chief Evangelist." Yeah, I get it. "Evangelize" had that cool factor, ever since Guy Kawasaki coined it over two decades ago to promote the Apple brand. Since leaving Apple, among other endeavors (Google, etc.), he's now the Chief Evangelist for Canva, a design software firm – same hat, different cattle.
