Googling people I once knew.

*sigh* I just looked for a friend of mine from college, and found one picture of him online, with no contact info. He would never be able to find me if he looked for me. So:

Paging Helmut Stockdreher! If you ever do a vanity search and find this, check my profile and send me an email. You knew me by a different name, in Chicago, in the early '90s.

Because I'm avoiding doing a PILE of dishes, I just googled him myself and your entry is the first thing to come up! Good luck.

I never ceases to amaze me that of all the people I think about regularly, people I've known online and off, I can't find any of them by googling. And I'm a pretty good googler.

THAT's a good idea!

Hopefully he'll google himself one of these days, will see your entry and will make the connection!

I've gotten in touch with a few friends via Google but as you note, sometimes they have changed their names and that makes it all but impossible at times. Or they have very common names and there are a zillion hits. Sometimes using the image search allows for sorting some of that out.

That anonymous item was from me. Sorry.

But it makes a good point: if Helmut finds this entry, he could even respond directly, by commenting anonymously (i.e., w/o having a LJ).
