Self-Obsession, Geography, and Mortgages

Sometimes I google myself. That’s right. I type “sean wallace” into google and see how high up the results I come. Most of the time it’s simply that, a popularity check, but sometimes I’m actually interested in what parts of my online activity are becoming public.

Today I was looking at whether, in the mind of google, I’m associated with the Fed. Answer: I’m not, much, but I was surprised to find out that I was listed as a research assistant on a paper by Ellen Merry at work. I made some maps for her a couple of months ago, and here they are! Cool. Maybe eventually I’ll stop posting each time something I worked on gets “published,” but I’m not sure.

    I always google myself. I have a less common name than you, so most of the results are actually me – a few of them are some freshman in college somewhere with the same name as me. I have also seen her MySpace (and blogged about it there…).

    And congratulations on the mention from a paper…
