De-blog for the paranoid

Are people out there blogging about you?

A tool for the paranoid to determine if there are people blogging about you, kind of like googling yourself but delivered in a blog format with the ability for the user to evaluate and remove links from the search if they are not really about you. Just check your personal de-blog and classify the link or two of the days as validly about you or not, then each day you get a new update to view.

       Now that adds to the paranoia, 2 fishbones & no annotations!

       I would talk about the paranoid people I have known here but it would only make them even more paranoid!

       I am aware of the pay for research type services, but find that they miss the mark, this should be able to not re-miss the mark. The example I can think of is a news search engine that I have access to at work, we are forever getting the football scores because Matthew Primus is in them (one of the Australian Telcos is called Primus Telecom). So a method where the de-blogger increases its accuracy through a feedback mechanism (I guess that is a bit like an Amazon.com or Tivo recommendation tied into a updated search engine delivered to a web page in digestible bites blog style).

       This could only be offered as a service it the company kept a large datasbase of all previous hits for its customers. Large databases don't make for high usage by the paranoid crowd however.   

       One could create a program that uses Goggle to search, but stores all the previous hits (along with their classifications) on a local computer, so it can only show new ones when it does a search.

       Is anyone really that paranoid? Also, if you did find one, what then?
