I'm #2 (on Google)

All interesting stories, at least on my campus, start out "So I was Googling myself..", and this news snippet is no exception. So I was Googling myself today and noticed that I am now the second result (at least in the US) for a "paul" search on Google.com, passing up Paul McCartney. I think that's the highest I'll be able to go considering the first spot is a Wikipedia hit for Paul the Apostle. I don't know how long it will stay like this and I'm sure the ranking will fluctuate from time to time.

On a related note, I contacted the owner of paul.com last week. I won't be able to afford that domain for a very long time. Also, I ended up hiring Mike Rohde last week to design a logo for this site and some personal branding. It's about time I got some real business cards too. Although, my business cards will never be as great as Matt Mullenweg's (founder of WordPress).

For the rest of this month and the first week of May, posting around here might be sporadic at best as finals near and projects reach their deadline. I was at the College of Computing with one of my computer science groups for about 40 hours last week.. those vending machines made a small fortune off of me.
