I think there's an opinion on that subject lying around here somewhere....

I mean who wants to hang around a self proclaimed loser?

That was by far the most impressive "review" of seoloser's gambit that I have seen. My gut reaction was that Kris wrote an open and honest post about his experience and that was the draw. We've all been there, done that but dare not speak of those embarrasing moments. It was also a refreshing change from the kiss up blogging taking place in the seo world today. Take a look at many of the Thanksgiving posts for example. "I'm so grateful for Danny Sullivan or Matt Cutts, etc". Bull! Now take a look at ShoeMoney's Thanksgiving post. I can only describe that as open and honest, not contrived. That's the "potential" I think Kris can display, the "naturally" that you say many of your clients fail to understand. But as you point out, what's next? Does the seoloser fade into obscurity not to be heard from again. He certainly can't keep up his seoloser schtick and impress anyone as Graywolf points out. I mean who wants to hang around a self proclaimed loser? Whatever he does I'll watch and hope he doesn't lose his way.

[...] Lost opportunity? Obviously not…. for me. Thank you Bill for pointing out the incrediBilly obvious - John Andrews is a competitve webmaster and SEO. Vanessa is a very nice person and a valuable Google resource. Pubcon is full of opportunity, if you know how to navigate it. [...]

The problem with the moniker is it's not a trust inspiring brand. For example would use the Charles Manson Daycare Center? How about the Michael Jackson School for Gifted Children, or the Jeffery Dahmer Culinary Academy? Working with words like "loser" it's hard to overcome. Not say it can't be done, for example is an excellent source for financial information, however getting past the name is big step.
