Evan Ratliff took a picture of himself every day he was on the lam.

What is it really like to try and disappear off the face of the earth? Writer Evan Ratliff knows all too well. 

A few years back, Wired magazine sponsored a contest in which they asked Ratliff to try and disappear for 30 days while still retaining some presence online. Wired offered its readers $5,000 to anyone who found him. That hunt became a nationwide phenomenon. 

Evan Ratliff, who is no longer on the lam, joins the show to talk about how hard it is to disappear while maintaining an online presence.
