The new egosurf target

Everyone has been talking about Google Code Search lately. But beyond code, can you use it for Ego Surfing?

Yes, yes you can.

For example, my name returns several hits from waaaaay back when I was helping out with the Mozilla project. Even though ColdFusion isn’t officially supported yet, you can see that a search for Ray Camden produces a ton of CF hits. I think it’ll be interesting to see how those hits grow as Google adds more languages to their spider.
