Fame Game is really starting to cook, so thanks for visiting and telling your friends. A lot has changed, and we hope you’re enjoying the ride. One of the cooler things we’re noticing, is the extent to which everyone googles each other to land on Fame Game. Nearly all of the top searches that bring visitors to Fame Game are the result of people searches. While we don’t intend on becoming the next Who’s Who Guide, we’re pretty jazzed that people inquiring about this select community come here first. Slowly, but surely, we’re becoming the record of New York cultural life.
At the same time, this isn’t coming out of the blue. We did build this site to be searchable in this capacity, we just never knew the extent to which it would interesting. Turns out, it’ a big deal — the Pew Internet and American Life Project reported that “47 percent of U.S. adult Internet users have Googled themselves.”
Its also funny that this idea, namely that people are more important the more searchable they are, has entered the cultural zeitgeist in some weird ways. Start by looking here, then watch this ridiculous video.
