I just tried that. None of them is me. I wonder what decisions are made
about me, based upon the non-me that Google finds? Perhaps I should
change my name to something less common, like Gene Kim-Eng.

Ahh, but if I Google for my name plus my city, I get an immediate
reference to a short piece (a writing sample!!) about repadding a flute,
something I wrote about ten years ago and had totally forgotten!
