and maintainer of:
I heard on IRC many years ago that it was not a good thing to Google yourself.
But the other day I accidently, wrote my full name in the Google search field in Firefox and hit carriage return.
The list of results was not particularly interesting or surprising and I had to go through several pages before something I did not expect appeared.
I clicked and apparently it was an article by Damian Conway, back from when we raised money for him to do cool Perl stuff, man those were the days.
Trying 'jonasbn'(I think it was), I got:
Which we found quite amuzing on #cph.pm, since a lot of the references where to our fellow monger kaare. There was also a mentioning of me being beaten:
'jonasb seems to be unliked too. He/She got beaten 1 times.'
, if only the stats would tell me who did it. Everything points to claco, who apparently is a very aggresive person, which kind of surprises me, but if it is on the Internet it must be true, even though I actually worked with Kaare and he is not as stupid as the page suggests.
Same day my other fellow Perl monger, Peter Makholm had a blog entry (in Danish) on Version2, he mentioned the self-googling and he discovered some interesting things about himself, so I guess it is okay to google yourself once in while, you might get a good laugh.
