googleganger

I came across a nice new word today (at salon.com): googleganger. Your googleganger is the person you always come across when you do a Google search for your own name. My googleganger is a physcial therapist in Berlin. What's yours?

======================
Googleganger is of course based on the German word Doppelgänger ("double goer"), anglicized as double-ganger (first documented in 1830). The OED even lists doppleganger.
