I recently met with a junior developer who was seeking web development career advice. When we met, she had clearly done her research on me, knowing my educational background and my general career path. It had been years since I Googled myself, and I became curious what info arises for my name. I’ve successfully avoided social media for the most part, but I have been working on and writing for my personal site, AlexBrinkman.com, since 2006, and EnlightenedPixel (this site) since 2010. I assumed could be found if using my full name. I was wrong, and it pissed me off.
