Oh my

After getting an email from an old friend I decided I’d check to see how I stacked up on Google. You know, the nice, ego stroke of googling yourself?

Holy crap. There’s refs to a usenet posting I sent when I lived in NYC in there. Of the first 20 hits, I’m 18 of ’em.

Whoa. I guess I need to keep a lower profile.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    It is for this reason that I may never be able to run for public office. :)

    3 out of the first 10 hits for “Tom Callaway” are me, but I don’t show up until #5.

    I’m 10 for 10 on “Tom “spot” Callaway” and “spot Callaway” though (including a positively horrid patch I posted to lkml before I knew better).

    But hey, if you search on “spot”, you get 0 hits for me out of google. Not a one in the 888 it will display.
