Self referential googling

I read an article in today's Boston Globe about googling your neighbors mortgage, which lead me finding out what google knows about me.

Here is a link from 1991! Even has my "" email. I started using the net back in 1987 so I'm sure google will find all my emails someday. Hopefully not the embarrassing emails.

Note the email address -- we were using a VAX. It has been almost 20 years since Robert Morris released the first worm (1988) - Morris' worm only impacted Unix machines (fingerd and sendmail flaws) so we were protected from the full impact. Though I do remember colleagues in Cambridge and clients (DARPA) getting impacted.
