The Power of Context

Somebody named 'Pamela' left an insightful comment (in addition to that of Gerald) to a previous post of mine on the workings of Microsoft Cardspace.

Without the obvious experience and insight into Cardspace demonstrated by the commenter, I wouldn't have thought to search by combining her name and the qualifier 'identity'.

It's still only a guess but I'm pretty optimistic that the third hit down is the right one.

Adding a Canadian like Pam to Whodentity would skew the North American identity distribution just that little bit more towards the 49th (as was pointed out to me by Dave in a comment to a different post).

Not to mention it would probably double the number of Ultimate fanatics...
