Captured: Evan Ratliff

Friday, September 11, 2009


Evan Ratliff was captured this week. He's the Wired Magazine contributor who decided to see for himself whether it's possible to disappear and reemerge with a brand new identity in the digital age. Wired Magazine launched a contest. Whoever located him within one month would get $5,000 ($3,000 paid by Ratliff himself). A little lighter in the wallet, Ratliff talks about his brief life on the run.

I love Bob for saying he understood next to nothing of the written accounts of how Ratliff was found because I felt the same way when I read them. The methodologies are clearer to me now that I've listened to the show. Looking forward to the December issue of Wired...
