Last month The Savvy Celiac wrote about Evan Ratcliff, a reporter for Wired Magazine who was trying to see whether it's possible to disappear and reemerge with a brand new identity in the digital age. Anyone who could find him within a month of his "disappearance" would win $5000. All over the world, people were trying to track him down. This week, with a lot of very high-tech sleuthing on the part of his pursuers, Evan was caught after 25 days on the run. What did him in? Evan, who has celiac disease, had a yen for some gluten-free pizza.
If you'd like to know the whole story, you can hear it on National Public Radio, read a techie version on the NewsCloudBlog, or watch a video from CBS News. Also, the folks at New Orleans' Naked Pizza restaurant, who caught him, have written about it on their Naked Pizza blog.
