A Tool to Soothe -- or Irritate -- the Blego
Hilarious post today by Steve Rubel, about a new Web tool called Preople. It ranks the popularity of your name -- not neccessarily your identity -- on the Web according to some mysterious set of calculations. Rubel slyly taunts Neville Hobson, who "lost" in a Preople comparison of these two uber PR bloggers (Rubel = 89,200; Hobson = 19,600). Alas, "Giovanni Rodriguez" ranked only 8,340, then shot down to 3,660, presumably after Preople sorted me from the other "Giovanni Rodriguez's" on the Web ( there are many, including a popular radio talk show host, a wayward youth in Miami, and a defendant in a well-documented civil lawsuit).
