Google Me

Published November 23, 2012 by stephie794

I saw a unique highly original documentary last night that really got me thinking.  I saw Google Me a documentary that was a selection of the Newport Beach Film Festival in 2008.Jim Killeen googled himself one night saw there was 26 people with the same name and decided to track as many down as he could and  interview them about their lives. He was surprised that  about half were rude and turned him down, but I wasn’t not everybody wants to be on camera! Lol! My favorite was the Irish Priest . The thought provoking question   he asked everyone was  What is man’s purpose for being here?  Some people were silly and said to play Poker  but the Priest had the best answer and one I wholeheartedly agree with  Man’s purpose is to love.! It’s only thing that makes getting out of bed in the morning worthwhile in my opinion.  I googled myself and don’t see any other  people with the same last name as me  and conversely, there is no way anyone named John Smith could interview everyone with the same name as him (would take years :P)  So I have two questions for you to answer  Have you ever googled yourself and did you like the results?  and what is man’s purpose ?  Don’t say 42 as that is the meaning of Life LOL

Here is the whole documentary .Did you know Google gave them their blessing and even a brief interview. They thought it was a very creative use of Google

  • Great Post and Question..Yes I have googled myself and i found a lot of my Old i want to forget about Chat days of the mid 90’s. Yikes..But.Because of our biological makeup, we all naturally want to stay alive, enjoy things and pursue goals. But as for a Point or Reason that we exist there are many Ideas..We.. along with billions of other life forms, continually live and die on Earth.. Like a storm or a fire life is a process that continues as long as conditions allow..All of the life forms on earth have one common goal: to replicate themselves before they become non-functional. That is your goal as well: to pass on your genes in the form of your children so they can keep your genes alive….

  • Well there are a couple of Erins out there. I would love to know more about them and what they do. For a while I actually had all of them in G+ circles, but it seems that I am the only one who posts regularly so I had to uncircle!

  • As I recall, there were already about 10,000 Michael Andersons on Facebook when I joined. I’d never get through all those, let alone all the Michael Andersons not on Facebook!! 😉

  • I don’t know about the higher purpose of mankind as a whole. I decided some time ago that my own purpose was to make an impression in the world. It sounds awfully trite, but I want to leave a me-shaped hole in the universe when I die. Someday, a long, long time from now, I want some great-great-many-more-greats-grandchildren to be working on genealogy and telling each other what a cool old chick I was. Apparently they can also call me corny, but I don’t care.
