I though it would be a good idea to make a list1 of all of the other Jason Coleman’s out on the World Wide Web, just in case I’m not your man. It’s very interesting for me to see what I have in common with the other Jason Coleman’s of the world (although most of them are here in the U.S. and Canada). This is by no means all of the Jason Colemans in the world, though. Just a short list of some of the guys who I come across often. Yes I Google my own damn name. So do you.
And thought it’s probably true this page helps my Google ranking, it actually helps these other guys more. I’ve been at the top of the pile there for a while now (like three years). Having links to all these sites only helps them at my own expense, so please save any accusations of trying to game the system. If you just do or don’t want me to mention you, then all you have to do is drop me an e-mail: jason at this domain.
the only one of few (see next) Jason Colemans3 to have actually contacted me (these other guys might still be fake, for all I know), the one who currently calls Washington D.C. his home is also the closest online Jason Coleman, geographically speaking, to me. He is a Peace Corp veteran, spending 2 1/2 years in Gabon, 4 months in Central American, and 7 months in Namibia. He now works at Peace corp HQ in the nations capitol. I’ve got to respect a guy whos spent that kind of time in foreign countries helping others. I wish I could say that I’ve got that in common with him, but my travel overseas has been of a much more casual and self-serving nature. Anyway, Jason seems like a great guy and it was great to hear (read) from him.
I recently was contacted by Jason Coleman(ia.com) via Newsvine. He mentioned he had read a number of my comments there, and fortunately for the both of us, found most of them agreeable. It’s great to know there are like-minded people in this world. He and his wife, Tina, have a fantastic WordPress powered blog about their family. They currently have two beautiful daughters and are expecting a baby boy in the Fall. Life looks great for Jason and Tina, and that makes this Jason Coleman pretty glad.
Jason Coleman – Artist
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a Jason Coleman who makes his living as a theatrical makeup artist and body painter. By all due accounts, he’s quite good, too. He certainly has the awards to show for it. You can check out a lot of his work, his beliefs, and more about him at his MySpace page [note: we'll let it slide that he uses MySpace since he said this site was "crazy cool."] I grabbed a shot of some of his work here, but rest assured he looks different without the RoboCop paint on. Not sure how good people end up in Omaha, but he seems like a cool guy and I was really glad to hear from him.
Jason Coleman of B’ham Alabama has a conservative political blog that he’s been running since October of 2004. He must of paid a good chunk for the .com address, because I wasn’t willing to plunk down the $500 bucks or so it was going for back in August. Anyway, he’s about as far to the right as I am to left, but he’s pretty big on space exploration, which makes him an okay guy. Maybe someday I’ll get to tell him about the time former NASA administrator Goldin told me I should be the first astronaut to go to Mars. I think Jason would appreciate that.
One of my favorite Jason Coleman’s out there is the .org guy. He’s seems to be a good bit more to the left than Jason Coleman(.com) and far less concerned with politics in general, but then again, most Jason Colemans are. He’s a world travel with pictures of trips to Mexico, Spain, China, Singapore, and Japan. However, he currently lives in Korea (although, I think he’s from Florida), which is really a coincidence becuase my mother-in-law is from Busan, Korea. Anyway, check out his site for many great pictures of places I dream of visiting.
Jason Coleman – Big Huge Games
The one Jason Coleman who always seemed to have higher Googlearity than me (that is, up until early 2005), is Jason Coleman, Chief Technical Officer at Big Huge Games. But is it any wonder when he has worked on some very popular games such as Civilization II and Rise of Nations? He has a couple of degrees in physics and is currently up in Timonium, MD. However, if Jason Coleman has a web site, it must be burried because I have yet to see it. Come on man, you’re a programmer! Okay, no need to bust your chops for that. As of December of 2005, this Jason Coleman appears to be the only one who’s mentioned on Wikipedia, under the entry for Big Huge Games. Way to represent, Jason Coleman.
Way out in British Columbia, Jason Coleman(.ca) makes his living as a professional photographer. If possible, I’d have hired this guy to come to my wedding. He’s damn good and his site has lots of pictures of attractive people.
