Shuffle up and Google.

I haven't googled myself in awhile, so I figured it was time to see what everyone's favorite search engine could find out about me. For whatever reason, I -- meaning the "real" Rob Cunningham -- never show up immediately in the search results. For what it's worth, my blog came up as the 13th search result, and my blog profile was the 21st result. Next result? A link to a newspaper article I wrote back in 2000; it came in as the 42nd search result.

Anyway, here's some fun stuff I came across on "other" Rob Cunninghams around the globe.

So, apparently my alter egos are involved in cancer research, films and movies, animation and gaming. Go figure.

Any unusual results you've ever encountered when you google your own name, or the name of a friend? I'd love to hear.
