Who is Cooper Netties ?
Will the real Cooper Netties Please Stand Up ?
So, clearly Cooper Netties isn't a real person, but if you need to put a face to a name, then the ""gentleman"" in the propeller cap (You'll have to trust me there is a propeller on top) is as close as you're going to get for the moment.
Now I'll readily admit, that despite the geek hat, there's not a lot to back up his role as any kind of incarnation of Kubernetes, technical, perhaps, cloud native ... maybe not so much. Nonetheless this is as good as you're going to get. If you've got a better candidate ... let me know.
