Could You Vanish If You Wanted To?

>> December 13, 2009

Just finished reading an article I found a couple of weeks and a computer virus ago about writer Evan Ratliff and his month on the lam. Pretty interesting exercise given today's internet entwined world. Also interesting is the fact that thousands of ordinary people jumped at the chance to catch him. I wonder, if there was no reward, would anyone have bothered? If the government was looking for someone, say, a blogging dissenter or political activist, would the public help the blogger or help the hunters? Both I suppose.

You can read about Evan's adventure at Wired.com
Thanks to Little Miss Attila for finding this one.
