A Plugged-In Public Service Announcement
The finder of a set of keys that were found along the running path in the Panhandle browses the USB drive attached to the key ring, Googles the addresses of properties referenced upon said drive, and returns a search results list of SocketSite articles.
If the keys above happen to belong to a plugged-in reader, here's how to claim them.
UPDATE: From the finder of the keys about an hour after we posted our announcement: "The owner of the keys saw the posting on your site this morning, contacted me, and got his keys back." It's yet another way it pays to be plugged-in. Cheers.

What a great story!
It's awesome the guy got his keys back, a little scary that there's that much info available on something you don't even think about, impressive that that V had the ability to get this info, and great to hear that he/she used his power for good rather than evil, and the story had a happy ending!

"Googles the addresses of properties referenced upon said drive, and returns a search results list of SocketSite articles."
why did he save the addresses of properties featured on socketsite?
[Editor’s Note: It wasn’t a list of properties featured on SocketSite upon the drive but rather research on properties that the owner had "explored," a selection of which we had covered and led the finder to reason that the owner was likely a real estate professional who would be "plugged-in."]
