Who am I?

I don't know about anyone else, but I find this relatively scary - Zoominfo trawl the web to find out who you are, collate all the information and put it on the web - all completely automatically. I came across my entry by mistake, and personally I find it relatively disturbing. I know it's one of those things that can't be avoided, but it's really quite an unpleasant thing to see, and makes a complete mockery of privacy laws. On the other hand, it's really quite impressive.

Probably one of the more scary/cool aspects is the way I was tagged by the system - at Foo Camp, I was manually tagged based on the results that Tim O'Reilly and friends could find out about me by searching - zoominfo's tags are actually, in my opinion, more accurate (though still not how I'd tag myself. (Sorry Tim, I couldn't help linking to your zoominfo!)
