Recently Google launched Google Profiles which will let you build a sort of online biography. You tell them things like where you’ve lived, where you’ve worked, and where you’ve went to school. You can also list things like your interests and usernames on other accounts like Twitter for instance.
What’s interesting is even if you are not a heavy user of Google Applications this is something you still problably want to get in and complete. Why? Because someone, somewhere, sometime, is going to do a search for you. Perhaps a potential employer. It would be nice if you could control what information comes back at least on the first hit. I tried it out and it was dead easy to get up and going and get some information put into it.
So waste no time! Go to http://www.google.com/profiles now and login and start editing your profile.
