I was able to get ahold of and use a web-enabled laptop, and search for my own name. The variant of Google I was using had a picture to the left of each web hit.
Though not something I had seen in August of 2006 when this dream was written, there is a search engine called "Snap" which makes thumbnails of web sites that you can see while you search:
...I'm not aware of Google doing this, although they now show small image previews for videos.)
Looking at the hits for my name, the first was something in a ".alias" domain, with a crazy URL, like "http://QUE13/geocities.alias". It had some pictures that didn't look like me. The second hit was indented to indicate similar content so I skipped over it. I clicked through the third hit since it had a picture that looked like me.
It was a biography that was overlaid on top of photographs, many of which were pictures of me and people I know. It recounted how my life was difficult and that I "felt like I was from another planet". It also talked about my time working for Mattel and J.C. Penney's.
Note I have never worked with either company.
My eyes were hurting such that I felt they were being pulled from their sockets. However, I did manage to read a little about how some phenomena I had described were later validated under someone's scientific theory.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
