I thought I was the only one paranoid to do this... have you ever "Googled" yourself?
It is a good idea according to Will Richardson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Richardson)
How well you Google can be important to your career, personal life and in ways I have never thought of before. No, you can't make a mistake just go away. But you can respond.
By the way, Will Richardson was our guest speaker at our school's opening professional development day. If you get a chance to hear him, do. Will has some very well thought out ideas and presents them with grace and humor. He said he was going to "push us." But I didn't feel like I was being belittled or threatened. He's worth a listen.
Kids today will need to think ahead in a big way. Everything you do is a possible gaffe on YouTube, Facebook, MySpace... will your kids "Google" well? This needs to be taught.
Facts are not the antidote for doubt
