First girlfriend finds me through Google

OK, this is weird. So I was in the Mercury News today and my first girlfriend from back at Prospect High School says she read that, wondered if I was the guy she hung around in High School, Googled me, confirmed that I was the Robert Scoble she remembered, and wrote me.

I haven’t seen her since 1983.

Even better, she’s director of marketing at a tech company.

Thanks to Mike Cassidy and Google. What a weird world we live in.

  7. Good site. I am searching for my first girlfriend (first kiss). She was 12 and I was 13 or 14. Her name is/was Leigh Ann Gore from Bellevue, WA. If anyone knows of her, would appreciate it. Mahalo a Nui Loa.

  18. Slightly sad that last comment – on Christmas Day too. Best thing to do Tahir is to follow Roberts ex-girlfriends lead and perhaps get out occasionally and speak to real people. If you can find someone closer to home you might even get to meet them.

  24. I’ve found a number of old friends through google and i think it’s amazing. A couple of years ago, i decided to look for an old University friend who came from Zimbabwe to study in the UK and we were on the same University Economics Degree course at Birmingham University in the early 1970′s. I googled his name and was shocked and amazed to find out that he was now the head of President Mugabe’s Zimbabwe secret service. It is amazing what you can find out, but i have had no luck with finding any of my old school or college girlfriends (Aaahhh!!!).

  26. Atul is absolutely right.

    MySpace.com is a one-stop shop for stalkers and identity thieves.

    It IS scary how willing people are to pour their lives out on the Internet. Everything is public as in globally public. Once it is out there, it’s on a log somewhere.
