Remember- the Internet never forgets!

A recent survey by Microsoft finds three-quarters of American recruiters and human resources professionals perform online searches into the activities of potential employees.

Most people have learned - some the hard way - that the lnternet's memory makes elephants look forgetful.

"The Internet makes everyone a public figure," says Michael Fertik, CEO of the online image management firm ReputationDefender, of which an estimated 97% of clients are ordinary citizens.

"Even if you don't put a lot of stuff about yourself online, someone else is doing it for you ... So you either do something about it, or learn to live with it."

Fertik's customers pay his company anywhere from $4 per month to $1,000 per year to help manage persona! Google search results, remove their names from corporate databases, perform online damage-control, and closely monitor their Internet footprints.

Because someone, somewhere, will be following that same electronic trail in deciding whether they want those people as co-workers, students, or even

Saturday-night dates.

A recent survey by Microsoft, for instance, finds three-quarters of American recruiters and human resources professionals perform online searches into the activities of potential employees.

The Internet startup Klout will analyze a person's social influence and authority based on their Twitter account. Pipl scours online photos, public records, court documents, academic journals and forum postings to reveal a person's "deep-web" history.

Even a basic Facebook search can turn up surprisingly intimate results, with many users having inadvertently left parts, or all, of their personal profiles open to the public.

And as more and more of these reputation queries are performed, experts say companies will probably seek a one-stop shopping source for aggregated information - think eBay star ratings, social media activities, old blog entries, comments made in online discussion groups, and cached documents.

This possibility is so likely, in fact, that there's already speculation about how the system could be legally navigated. Harvard cyber law professor Jonathan Zittrain supports the idea of being able to declare "reputation bankruptcy", wiping clean the digital slate to start fresh every 10 years or so.

"We don't trust people who are blank slates these days," says Sidneyeve Matrix, professor of media at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont. "lt's like that saying, 'If you don't show up on Google, you don't exist."'

"The problem with reputation reformatting; or a digital reset, is that information about us exists on privately owned and corporate servers," says Matrix. "So we can never really erase everything."

Princess Diana: Editors admit guilt over death

5:50PM BST 21 Aug 2007

The editors of the three biggest selling tabloid newspapers at the time of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales have disclosed for the first time their own share of guilt over the accident that killed her.

The editors of The Sun, Daily Mirror and News of the World have conceded that they had helped create an atmosphere in which the paparazzi, who were chasing Diana when her car crashed in a Paris underpass, were out of control.

Phil Hall, who was editor of the News of the World, said it was a circle of culpability involving the readers who demanded more photographs, the photographers who chased her and the newspapers that published the pictures.

"A big Diana story could add 150,000 sales. So we were all responsible," he said.

Mr Hall, speaking on the ITV1 documentary Diana’s Last Summer, said: "I felt huge responsibility for what happened and I think everyone in the media did.

"If the paparazzi hadn’t been following her the car wouldn’t have been speeding and, you know, the accident may never have happened."

He said the princess had often tipped off his newspaper about photo opportunities and invited his executives to lunch at Kensington Palace. "She wanted to try to be on the front foot over her media coverage," he said.

After the death of the princess in Aug 1997, the tabloids said they would ban photographs taken by the paparazzi.

The Sunday Mirror bought the paparazzi pictures, published three weeks before the princess’s death, which first showed the seriousness of her liaison with Dodi Fayed and encouraged the Paris chase.

Stuart Higgins, who edited The Sun, told The Daily Telegraph: "The death of Princess Diana was the most tragic story during my period as editor. I have often questioned my role, the paper’s role and the media’s role generally in her death and the events leading up to it.

"The tabloids created a frenzy and appetite around Diana. But in the end I believe it was just a terrible accident, caused by a drunken driver and possibly because of the lack of the high level of police and security protection that she had enjoyed previously."

Patrick Jephson, her former private secretary, said: "They would chase the royal motorcade on motorcycles. They had pillion passengers carrying heavy television cameras. It all contributed to the sense of being inside a Wild West stagecoach while bandits were attacking it."

Piers Morgan, the then editor of the Daily Mirror, accepted that as editors they had not done enough to curb the wilder excesses of freelance photographers. He said: "Everyone working on national newspapers, in the first few days after she died, felt a collective sense that the paparazzi were out of control in relation to Diana. She was the biggest celebrity we have ever seen and it got completely out of hand."

Asked if it had changed, he said: "No one person attracts the attention she used to. I don’t think any single human being had more fascination to the public, was more intruded upon, or when it suited colluded more."

Mr Morgan said the princess had no choice but to try to dictate some of the media coverage. "I went to lunch with her at Kensington Palace. She pointed out of a window showing me 12 vans and motorbikes from foreign media organisations. That was her daily life. You realised although she did collude she did not have much choice."

He said her death was a "ghastly accident" but added: "We in the media were culpable in allowing the paparazzi to become ridiculously over the top."

Diana's Last Summer will be shown on Wednesday at 9pm on ITV1.
