I guess this is a reason to be glad I'm changing my name. Maybe?

The bloggess posted today about Googlism, whose existence I was previously unaware of, which purports to find "will find out what thinks of you, your friends or anything!"

So, what I found that is there are mulitiple other Jane Pattersons who do way cooler stuff than me that google thinks of first. Which I already knew some of -- it's a hella common name, but even back in the earlier, less populous, days of the internet I found one who was a translator at the UN -- but I also used to come up in searches like this. Once, I was written up in books (well, two) on the amazing new phenomenon that was the world wide web!

Ah, the net.goddess days of, um, 1994?  Er, yeah.

Oh, and I threw in "jeliza" just to see, expecting mostly results about the Terry Gilliam character, and it returns only 4 lines:

jeliza is a program with which you can make conversation
jeliza is used to her parents being unconscious for long periods of time
jeliza is on scamp
jeliza is essential

Essential is good.
