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
