Middle Names

I have begun to use my middle name as a perhaps temporary disambiguator.

Once upon a time if I did a Web search for the phrase “Jonathan Pool” I retrieved no pages about or by anybody else. The count of people with that name on the Web has increased a bit, so in the interest of ambiguity prevention I am adding to my name label the middle name I previously omitted except when asked. Allegedly this uniqueness technique will become unnecessary when URIs assume the job.

  1. Ha ha. You’re not unique. I’m so glad that isn’t one of the problems I have.

    1. I’m envious. There isn’t even a page that contains both “Janiska” and “Kellerovich” in any order and at any distance findable by Google. As NPR would say, “You are BLEEPing unique.”
