Google, The New York Times, the 2000 Election and the 26 year old version of myself
Like many folks out there I use Google Alerts to track the happenings of things I’m interested in. Included in my search query are mentions of myself…..primarily for the purpose of seeing which sites I post on are tracked (and how quickly things get indexed) and also because its interesting to see who’s talking about me. Imagine my surprise when I find this Google Alert from seven years ago regarding the 2000 election. If I recall correctly, I was having lunch with a colleague in Chicago when we were approached by a reporter claiming to be from The New York Times. Apparently he was telling the truth. At least I got the last word in the article.
