Being Me

Posted April 24th, 2007 by

Random thought for today:

I have a very common name.  It’s mostly accidental (not my name at birth, I’ll let you extrapolate from there) but it has some interesting side effects when it comes to anonymity.

For instance, I know 2 Michael Smiths inside DC who are Information Security practitioners.  That means that I can’t find myself on Google even if I know what I’m looking for.  For all practical purposes, I’m about as anonymous as you can get in today’s world.

    Well, if you google my name you come up with a pornographer and a Catholic Priest (who BTW won 9 Million in the NY lottery in 1990)

    So um… which one are you?

    On second hand, I don’t really want to know *that much* about your extracurricular activities, even though you probably feel the same about some fo the stuff about me that I’ve told you. =)
