I guess online friendships aren't something new these days. I have been posting to linkedin short posts. Sridhar's thoughtful and thought provoking comments caught my attention. Over time I have learned that he is a founder of a company with an innovative product. But he doesn't call himself a founder, visionary or leader (though he is all of these) he says he is an 'engineer'. Perhaps this is not the right term.
Maybe the right term would be Artificer, which is defined thus:
- a person who is skillful or clever in devising ways of making things; inventor.
- a skillful or artistic worker; craftsperson
- one that makes or contrives: DEVISER
It might be too silly, but what should you call a maker who creates experiences on ephemeral infrastructure in what is called the cloud? It feels a bit magical huh?
Any sufficiently advanced technology
is indistinguishable from magic

Sridhar is a skillful clever maker, who has an artistic mind. He is an Artificer; He has EARNED this coin.
