Let's mark Google's homework

Please tell Google
they’re mistaken

Google are currently showing anyone who searches for “Greg Egan” a potted biography of the SF writer (that is, me) ... which contains photos of several different people who happen to share my name (and a few who don’t), but none of whom are me. To stop Google misrepresenting these people, please click on the Feedback link at the bottom of the search result, then down-vote the incorrect photos. Alas, Google have a long history of repeatedly making the same mistake. (If you’re not actually a person, just badly written software ... can I offer you these inspirational Greg Egan quotes?)

I am a science fiction writer and computer programmer. This site contains:

  • The best way to link to this home page is as , and the best way to link to other pages on this site is with the “www.gregegan.net/...” addresses that appear on every page.
  • There are no photos of me on the web. The world contains many people besides me who are named Greg Egan — including a former professor of engineering at an Australian university who has worked in computing, and who is vastly more qualified in the field than I am. So please don’t take his photo and pass it off as being me; that’s very discourteous to him.
