Discover Your Self

Why you should Google yourself–and often:

To see what the Internet knows about you, start by going to the Google site or by using the Google toolbar. Next, either type your name in quotations or, for a more refined search, type intext: (intext with a colon) immediately followed by your name in quotes. Now type your address or phone number, and Google may turn up a church or a social group directory listing. If this doesn’t surprise or outrage you, type into Google your social security number or credit card numbers.

I’ve been doing that for years (as I posted previously).
