[rdfweb-dev] suggestion : lost property Message in a Bottle
himself at brycebenton.us

I made a primitive "message in a bottle" page with the hope that some
old friends might eventually search for my name or their own and land on
my page. Basically, it's just a page with a bunch of names and places
that I've been associated with over the years.
It's worked a few times, actually. Another fun part of it is monitoring
the referer log so i know whenever someone somewhere searches for a
certain name. If they include another identifying element, for example
"chris moore baylor university", then I can be (almost) sure it was a
search for an old friend, although it might in fact be an ego search
(admit it: you've all done this yourselves).
Another advantage is that i tell people, "if you ever lose track of me,
just do a google search for 'bryce benton'".
To illustrate how effective this is, I won't provide the link here. Find
it yourself. See if you can find my email address without peeking at the
header of this message.
