What comes up? I get this when I search for “James Galvin”.
My LinkedIn profile:
A page from my blog… about Bosnia, for some reason:
And a post from my blog about that whole Eircom thing.

I can understand Cuil’s launch problems. As Mike Arrington said on Techcrunch, getting wiped off the face of the earth as soon as you launch is like a rite of passage. Not a lot of startups can stay afloat during the first wave of publicity, and Cuil certainly got a lot of publicity when it launched. But these misplaced images could actually be damaging. I don’t care if people search for me and think that I’m some axe-murdering poet, or Highway to Heaven guy look alike. But other people have not been so lucky with the images that come up alongside their results. Check out this NSFW post on The Register. Cuil would have done themselves a favour and saved themselves some load by keeping this feature behind the scenes bumps have been ironed out.
