I saw the term 'doppelgoogle' on a mailing list today, referring to the different people with the same name that come up when you google someone. Great word, although technically the usage is a bit off the mark since the original 'doppelganger' generally means a ghostly or shadowy double of oneself, and not simply a namesake. But hey, I'm happy to let the vernacular lead on this.

So my personal doppelgoogles include a fishing boat captain, a family man, an expert on photopolymer plates, and a professor of swine nutrition. Looks like I'm the only one blogging so far, heh.
