see i am thinking about using my own "fake authors" and starting to build authority around them by using them on all my press releases and article submissions... then later in time, anything posted by that author will be easier to rank?

true, you could really go either way i guess. could alsooo be seen as a footprint by google though? hard to say. I think ideally finding a list of authors google likes (idk how to round that up, maybe just look on popular sites) and using them randomly

I understood this differently. Its not going to give you the benefit of ranking your articles or posts higher, merely make them tied together and thus easier to find with an advanced search query.

Otherwise we could all write a random blog post and sign it as rel author=matt cutts. From what I understand it is just easier to find more content from the same author on Google as it allows Google to identify the author of the content across multiple sites; so if you find something you liked you could find other articles or sites where the same author writes. Obviously if your keyword is your name it would be helpful but I don't think its designed to allow your article to rank higher just by adding an authority name to the tag.

I think this is the good news for all the author who all are writing for their personal blogs and guest blogs.
