All the Inktomi folks are on campus today. I guess this is the first day of assimilation. At least there's a big party tonight to welcome them all to the collective. :-)

On a related note, someone just introduced me (passing in the hall) to a small caravan of Inktomi guys by saying "This is Jeremy. He's the one who shows up when you search for Jeremy." I responded "at least on Google I do..." Then a 5 second discussion ensued about that fact that it probably works on Inktomi now too.

As the caravan passed, someone at the end asked "are you the MySQL Jeremy?"

Hmm. I guess that in this context I am.

You seem to show up first on Yahoo! too. Well, after the 'Sponsor Matches' of course...

Well, Y! Search uses Google results, so that makes sense.

Your entry made me search for my name, Indrek, too. Just out of all the curiosity. And whoa - my homepage comes up second. I understand that they use the pagerank system, that keeps track of the links pointing to my homepage, but they must take their content in account, too - because my index page doesn't mention my name at all. Google's a darn cool voodoo.

BTW, I linked your entry in my blog, but I'm using my own home-brewn blog engine and still haven't had the time to figure out how the trackback exactly works. So consider yourself pinged. :)

Jeremy is listed top at Google and Altavista, but at Inktomi his site is not listed under the top 30. At Alltheweb the site is ranked at pos. 20, so there is some room left for further improvements ;-)
