And Now, ‘Google Me’ The Movie
Everyone has searched on his/her own name and some people even have real-time news alerts tied to their names. Now a new online documentary takes this vanity search phenomenon to a new level with Google Me the Movie. Part time actor Jim Killeen discovered there were six other Jim Killeens and so he went around the world and interviewed them, asking each the same set of questions, and made a film out of it.
But this isn’t the first film of its kind. In 2004 a film came out about Dave Gorman’s Googlewhack experiences, which had been an HBO special and, before it, a live one man show.
Google Me debuts on YouTube this Friday and is in and of itself an interesting development.
