Every now and then, I google myself. It reminds me how anonymous I am. (And what it means to be The 100 Billionth Person.) However, it is also entertaining to see what other people named Craig Collins are doing, and if they are unwittingly harming my reputation.
Let’s take Craig H. Collins for example. (We share the same middle initial.) Craig seems to run a company called Social Media Edge, when he isn’t writing his blog. On June 9, 2011, Craig H. Collins wrote:
It’s no coincidence that Facebook is the hottest social network in the world… The creators of Facebook understand what people want and need in a social network and are continually updating and adjusting Facebook’s many user functions and constantly adding fun touches and great new ways to connect with others and enhance the Facebook experience.
Craig H. Collins is really on top of the latest trends. I have a feeling that if I met this man, we would annihilate each other in a violent matter-antimatter interaction.
Then there is Craig Collins, a New Jersey wedding photographer. Wedding photography is not child’s play, so good for him. I like his photos but the background music on his website, well, let’s say it gives me visions of slow dances with beer bottles in hand.
There is Dr. Craig H. Collins, a pulmonologist in Cincinnati; Craig H. Collins, a tort lawyer in California; the Arizona attorney Craig Collins and the North Carolina lawyer Craig Collins; Massachusetts Dept. of Corrections Prisoner 92708 Craig Collins; the helicopter enthusiast Craig Collins; and gospel DJ Craig C from Baltimore. Who are these people? Do they share the same sense of responsibility about our good name?
If any Craig Collins happens to be reading this, please leave a comment. Except me, that is, as this one has already done so.
