I have always been fascinated with people who share my name. Fortunately for me, now with the Internet I am able to monitor my name showing up anywhere in the world through Google and Yahoo news alerts. If you don’t use this technique, you’re missing out. You can, for free, setup news alerts on your name, your company names, your competitors, etc.. Anyone. I have about 30 setup and have it set to email me immediately when a “hit” is found. Go to http://news.google.com/ and click on the “News Alerts” link in the left hand side to set up your own.
Today I got notified that “Jimmy Kukral, 15, checks out skis at Outdoor Traders yesterday. He expects some ski trips he was planning to take to be canceled because of the unusually warm winter.”
The funny thing is, I know for a fact that there is yet another Jim Kukral living right here in NE Ohio, but have never met. Would worlds collide and the universe implode if we in fact did meet?
