The tricky business of securing your online identity

The home page of Google pulled up on a computer.

Ever get an e-mail meant for someone else, someone who shares your name? Anyone ever said they found others on Facebook with your name, but couldn't find you? Or perhaps you've been frustrated because some other jerk with your name seems to have beaten you to every social network and Web email account?

So is confused online identity such a problem? Back in April 2009, I decided to investigate by asking some of the other top Jon Gordon's on the Web - those who spell their first names J-O-N like me.
