This is a question Oblique Strategies for Work

We want you to share solutions that solved work problems - but don't explain the problem it solved.

The idea is that someone else, when they have a problem can read this and see if your solution jolts them out of their problem.

(This is obviously a tribute to Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies cards which were filled with stuff like "add backing vocals")

I did this
and then told people - I shouldn't have told people. Never tell people.

I did that
then decided that marketing the bot as a product would be more profitable than my job so I now just do that.

Of course, there is another bot in charge of that.

It's bots all the way down.

big bots have little bots upon their backs to byte 'em
little bots have smaller bots
and so ad infinitum
