Cultural attache

posted by Jason Kottke May 05, 2008

Movie producer Brian Grazer recently interviewed candidates for a new cultural attaché, someone who would be responsible for Grazer's ongoing cultural education, keeping him abreast of current goings-on in the news, science, music, etc.

"They have to be really resourceful," Grazer said. "I like to meet people in dangerous organizations, and my cultural attaché finds out who that person is — who runs the Yakuza, or the Masons, or MI5."

I am nowhere near that resourceful, but I have often thought of parleying my blogging experience into providing a similar service for individuals, doing what I do on kottke.org but on an individual basis, tailored to the needs of a specific person, or probably more usefully, a specific company.
