Visual Map of Your Online Presence
Paulo Nuin shared this interesting link today on his Friendfeed account. I’m not sure Personas works perfectly, but shows some useful things about what people can find when they do a search for your name online. You insert your name, then let it visualize everything. In details:
Enter your name, and Personas scours the web for information and attempts to characterize the person – to fit them to a predetermined set of categories that an algorithmic process created from a massive corpus of data. The computational process is visualized with each stage of the analysis, finally resulting in the presentation of a seemingly authoritative personal profile.
It turned out my keywords are online, education and medical. Seems to be pretty accurate.
