Profiles of Friends on the New Google Profiles

Google recently introduced common profiles for their many applications. If someone has a profile and it matches, exactly, a search, Google displays the profile at the bottom of the first page of search results. It is unclear to me whether Google plans to introduce and Twitter like functionality. I don't even know if their spiders even crawl their own pages.

Anywhere, here are some links to people and businesses that I know that have profiles set up on Google:

  • John Fitzpatrick - that's me.
  • Vita Rara - my employer.
  • MORI- a membership management application that I've been working on.
  • Modal Tracker - software to track intermodal shipping containers.
  • Quadran - an ERP system for importers/distributors
  • Modal Labs - Vita Rara's division for software to serve the intermodal shipping industry (like Modal Tracker).
  • Kase Manager - software for help desks to track client issues and trouble tickets.
  • Vitaly Babiy - a co-worker of mine.

Friends On Identi.ca

Spent some time setting up profiles for a number of friends and business contacts on Identi.ca over the past couple of days. For those who aren't aware, Identi.ca is a competitor to Twitter that has about 1/500th the user base. Here's a list of the accounts:

Mark Menard, John Fitzpatrick, VitaRara, and MORI

Vita Rara (VitaRara) is my employer. Mark Menard is the owner. MORI, which is short for Masonic Online Registry Interface, is the nearly singularly focused obsession of the past five years of my professional life.

Mark Menard is a mason. After starting VitaRara in 2004, he hired me to work on a web-based membership tracking system that both lodge secretaries and Grand Lodge users could use together to manage a given state's Masonic membership. In January of 2005, we delivered MORI to the Grand Lodge of New York. Since that time, John Fitzpatrick (that's me) and Mark Menard have delivered MORI to five other Masonic organizations: The Order of the Eastern Star in New York, the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin, the Grand Lodge of North Carolina, the Grand Lodge of Ohio and the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts.

More state bodies and other related bodies will be setup in MORI in the future, though I cannot say which ones yet. Several states have expressed strong interest, but this is a time of year when decisions of this nature are hard to come to.
