    This feature is powered by a company called Eliyon. Pretty interesting technology. It is entirely automated, keying off of press releases and corporate info pages to build profiles of people. Slick.

    Of course, it’s not without its problems. We demo’d it and found that in addition to being the president of Walt Disney World, Annette Funicello (!) was also doing some work as a Witch on the side. . .

    Quite frankly I can do far better Googling my name.

    It rather annoyingly included all the Patrick’s in with the Rick’s.

    If they added a third field for “industry” I think those with more common names would have better luck.
