Off the grid

I should probably do more with this blog than just link to stuff, but I’ve just redesigned my portfolio site, so I think I’ve hit my upper limit for producing web content in a week.

This is a really great read from Wired: one of their writers, Evan Ratliff, essentially became a fugitive for nearly a month, attempting to avoid being caught by an online community being lured by a $5,000 prize. You can probably take two things from the story:

1) It’s pretty damned hard to disappear if someone really wants to find you
2) Being on the run is pretty damn lonely if all you have for friends are Twitter spambots
