You have to be a little careful with these Google counts. If you do a
search on "Hal Finney" you will find a couple of hits on the first page
about some 1930s baseball player. I suspect there's only one Max More on
the net, but Anders Sandberg seems to be a name shared by at least a few
other people.

I doubt that our Anders is also the professional hockey player shown at,
or is the L. Anders Sandberg who is the author of the book "Sustainability,
The Challenge" at,
or is the president of the Stokholm Rotary Club,
(Or maybe he is!)

I think most of the hits are for the "real" Anders but a certain
percentage are for imposters. Likewise for other people, depending
on how common their name is, as with me and that baseball player.
