The power of the Internet

I recently received a first-hand illustration of the power of the Internet. My first girlfriend from 30+ years ago found me using a simple Internet search tool!

Now how cool is that!?

I began this weblog in October. With it, my Google "ranking" increased from who-knows-where to #2. She "Googled" my name and, from the description on my weblog, thought it might be me and sent me an e-mail. That was almost two weeks ago and we've been corresponding trying to catch up on each other's lives.

For all the negatives related to the Internet (Spam, spyware, viruses and so forth), I've found another positive.
