She looked to the internet to receive her pat on the back, shot in the arm or 'atta girl. Since her name was a common one, it appeared everywhere. By entering the e-world searching google, dogpile and yahoo, she would realize herself as a doctor, accomplished musician and even a local politician. When she discovered metasearches and metacrawlers her selfeesteem rose even higher.
