Profile of Rahul Kanakia

More Information

This profile moderated by Rahul Kanakia.


          Rahul Kanakia is really excited that this page is going to be one of the top Google results for his name, at least for the next several years. That really means alot to him, in terms of finally being able to cover up some of that sordid web-trail he left behind in his youth (when will those UseNet posts he made at twelve years old go away?). Instead, he can direct you to his blog at, where he can engage in more active management of his internet persona. He's really hoping that the validation this website gives him will mark the start of a different relationship with the internet, one where he's seen as less of an "acolyte" or "seeker" and more as a "sage". Because he's really wise, and he just wants people to worship him for it.
          In terms of actual biography type stuff, Rahul Kanakia is a Washington, D.C. native who graduated from Stanford University in 2008. He's been writing for several years and attended the Clarion Writer's Workshop in 2006.
          Cool. Looking forward to seeing you on my website. Please visit it. Because right now there are not so many visitors. And it feels kind of lonely to post on it sometimes.
