Go Google yourself

No seriously, plug your name into Google and see what comes up, especially if you're among the meeting professionals on the job hunt these days. Chances are, those looking to employ you (or give you a raise, or invite you to speak, or give you whatever it is you desire) will check you out on the Internet, so you might as well know what they'll be seeing. And while it's true that once something is on the Web, it's forever, there are ways to manage what will come up in a Google search. Or so says Wired. I haven't tried it, but Wireds How-to blog includes a step-by-step on how to disengage yourself from some less-than-complimentary Internet content.
