My October 2015 article for the Loch a Tuath News.
Have you ever searched for your name on Google? As part of an exercise about online safety I was once asked to type in my own name and analyze what I found. Thankfully, being a child of dial-up Internet and the age of “get off the computer, I need to use the phone!”, there is very little record of my childhood misdemeanors on the World Wide Web. One particular mention did surprise me though. It came from The Herald website and was a listing of all the Royal National Mòd winners from 2000. There I was: Donna Mairi MacIver, Còisir Òg a’ Bhac, third place in poetry recitation. It’s not a bad way to be remembered by future generations.
