"Twenty-somethings are going to search engines to check out people they meet at parties." Quite so. Today's New York Time's Article on researching people via the search engines has some interesting stories to tell about the negative aspects of being able to find people online. I've never been too concerned about my "online-privacy". Just don't steal my credit card number or give me any computer viruses and I'll be happy. In fact, I'm proud to come up #1 on Google on a search for Andrew Sinclair. I can see where this page differs from the examples in the article though. I write this page myself and control 100% of its content. Now if someone else wrote something about me on the web, I might be concerned about the accuracy of their representation, but I doubt I would mind an accurate mention of my name. Unlike some people, I have nothing to hide.
Now if only I could get all those other (much uglier) Andrew Sinclairs to stop using my name.
DSL up again.
