Who does Google think you are?

What does Google “think” of you? Find out via Googlism, a fun tool that searches Google to arrive at a characterization of a person, place or thing.

Take me for instance. Googlism reports: “robert ambrogi is a prolific writer on internet legal issues who works in alternative dispute resolution in massachussetts.” (OK, so Googlism doesn’t know how to spell Massachusetts.)

What about some other members of the Law.com blog network? For some, Googlism is right on:

For others, it is more cryptic in its response:

  • joy london is seated with her back to the camera

For several, it has not formed an opinion:

  • I don’t know about Googlisms, but consider this footnote from Justice William W. Bedsworth’s post on Cal Law’s Legal News site, here: http://www.law.com/jsp/ca/PubArticleCA.jsp?id=1109859527830 (subscription required). His post recounts the sexual harrassment lawsuit filed over the breast-exposures to Koko the Gorilla:

    “Google can’t even find a previous reference to ‘interspecies gorilla pimping.’ When I added the word ‘homosexual’ the response was, ‘Consider psychotherapy.’ “
