Is "a Dev Advocate has to be at least at the technical level of whoever they talk and listen to" a valid tldr of your comment then, @softchris?

not at least, but maybe one level under. Can't be too big of a distance... But yea skill can be taught. Empathy can't. Empathy, curiousness, willingness to learn, that goes far.
