And to think that I found it on Bing

Ever since I started writing books I check Google (and for the past number of years it has been Google) for my name every now and then; both for the ego gratification and to see if there is misinformation or unhappy readers or other stories I should respond to.

Bing

Not that long ago, like a good corporate boy I would Live Search (boy that was hard to make into a verb) for my name. Eh.

Today I tried Bing.  In the first page of searching images, I found an interview I gave last year at TechEd Barcelona, but was never able to track down.

Wow am I glad I’ve shaved off the dopey facial hair.

I was pretty impressed when I clicked on Biography. Somehow Bing culled through my 3MM entries and found 5,100 that were specifically biographical. Cool.  Here’s the first line of 6 of the first 10 articles found,

Bio
The other 4 had to do with me but were not really bios. Still, not bad.

I’ll be keeping an eye on Bing. Meanwhile, get ready to Bing yourself, don’t be shy.

You can find out more on Bing.com

(Yes, this sounded a lot like hype, but I really liked it. And it is nice to see something new in searching)
