The Intarwebs is a great tool for finding people. I used to work for the American Collectors Association (and no, they don’t collect stamps), so I should know. There are a lot of people from way back when who I am curious about. Friends from 1st grade, elementary school, high school, even after college. with whom it would be fun to reconnect.
Sure, I could stalk them, but I’m lazy. So instead, I’m putting their names on a web page, for them to find when they do a little egosurfing. Because, come on, who hasn’t indulged in a little egosurfing?
