“My advice to * is”

So I was reading Oso’s latest entry: Advice to Oso From The World, well, actually, I saw the headline in my gmail “web snippets” – the low budget RSS reader build into gmail and I presumed I knew what it would be about, thinking it would be one of those web services things where you can query google for “my advice to oso” and get all kinds of wacky results. Well, instead he disappointed that presumption and was all sort of obliquely self-examinationy, something I myself have not done, at least no publicly for a while. I commend Oso for trying to get at that core thing. Trying to get to that core self-understanding and reflection that is REALLY REALLY HARD WORK.

Kudos, Oso.


So I did the google query for “my advice to Joe” and got all kinds of interesting results. Funny, odd. And since Oso is not really a common appellation for people, well, I also did “David” — for you Oso. Since I thought that was what your post was gonna be. So here’s google’s web’s world’s advice to Oso:

  • “my advice to David is to make sure the company‚Äôs brand is properly aligned with its product set and sales strategy. ..”
  • “My advice to David is to take the advice I got ie to ask for opinions of mouthpieces to try rather than mouthpieces to buy. “

  • “My advice to David is to KEEP IT UP. …”
  • “my advice to David is keep thefansforum independant, that is The wishes of The Members.”

And here is the advice to me:

  • “my advice to joe is to get rid of Norton AV (and all other Norton 2002 or later products) As soon As possible.”

one comment so far...

Brilliant. I think I’ll probably follow at least half of it. I love the fact that the advice, “keep it up” (cough cough) comes from an erotic short story.
