Some of you are acquainted with academia.edu, the academic’s Facebook [sort of]. Once you’ve set up your presence there, they’ll let you know if someone reads a paper of yours. And they’ll tell you whenever someone searches for you on the web. I happened to be visiting a moment ago because I’ve heard they will allow us to customize our front pages. Good news, that. There was an icon that said I had a new notification. Someone had Googled me! Check it out.
I’ll take that as a compliment.
Thanks for dropping by! If you like what you see, follow me on Google Friend Connect or Twitter, friend me on Facebook, check out my publications at Academia, or connect on Linkedin. You can also subscribe to receive new posts by email or RSS [scroll to the top and look on the left]. And please don’t forget. Oh, and you can always put me on your blogroll! By the way, I get a small commission for anything you purchase from Amazon.com if you go there by clicking through from this site.

It is worth following this up. You will find that someone else has googled you with this combination–me. And you know I do not associate you with the improper noun.
When you look at it, the word moron does not apply to you but to someone else, even though the original searcher may have been desperately trying to prove that someone else thought you were worthy of the accolade.
@Iain. Hmmm. Interesting. I even googled myself with the same search terms. Birds of a feather, as they say.
