Web Startup Offers A Degree Of Control

Claim_ID.jpg
USA Today introduces us to ClaimID, a company that believes search engines have been having the final say about personal identities for too long.
ClaimID lets you classify, annotate, prioritize and share the information about you found online, so that people who search for you are able to see the identity you want to present.
ClaimID was created by two doctoral students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science.

    Thanks for the head’s up on this. Good stuff. I just started using it and yeah, my claimID page shows up at number 4 on a google name search. Now the world will know that I was not indicted for defrauding a school district, that I am not running for mayor in Canada, and that I’m not dead.
