What is a Happiness Manager?

I’ve been listening to Linux for Everyone since its inception almost two years ago. I’ve been a Linux user for almost twenty years and it’s my daily driver for most of the last fifteen years. Prior to December 2018 most of my LInux machines were repurposed Dell computers. That changed following a trip to Denver in 2018. I was the guest of System76. I was their for the rollout of their Thelio line of Linux desktops. One of the first people I met at the factory was Emma Marshall. She’s the Happiness Manager. Emma is one of the happiest and zaniest people I’ve ever met. I remember walking in the door of the factory and seeing Emma and her team. Hanging from the large LCD display of her computer was a rubber fish. I told her how much I liked the fish as it reminded me of friend I used to teach with. Emma offered to give me the fish as a keepsake. Following the day long factory visit System76 took us to downtown Denver for a wonderful meal and socializing. When it came time for me to leave and hail the Lyft driver who would take me back to the hotel, Emma made sure that I made the right connection. She’s a wonderful person and I was pleased to see that Jason Evangelho had a nice interview with her on his podcast today.
