WHO: Author & Privacy Expert
My name is Frank M. Ahearn I am the author of How to Disappear & The Digital Hit Man. My books are considered the leading books in the world of privacy and personal freedom. I work with victims of stalkers and individuals who need help with unfortunate digital issues. I also travel the world sharing my ideas and thoughts about the future of privacy.
My new book is filled with information, examples and tools that are utilized in the world of privacy. Originally I planned on publishing How to Disappear From BIG BROTHER with a traditional publisher. However, after much thought about the current state of privacy in the world I believe my book would be best served if I write without any publisher interference.
To release How to Disappear From BIG BROTHER on March 15, 2014.
Because privacy matters! If you know the initials NSA you know we are losing our privacy quite rapidly. My new books provides information about becoming more private in a world where the government is violating privacy. I am a true advocate of personal privacy and believe if we change some of our ways in the digital world we can protect our information in the future.
SAMPLE: Removing Yourself From The Digital Connections
Imagine it’s a Friday night and you are at the school dance and you make the mistake of asking the bully’s significant other to dance. The bully finds out and you are dead meat. The next few days the bully tries hunting you down but you avoided capture. As the saying goes you cannot run forever.
The following week you are delivering pizza and as you pull up to the house that ordered the pie you discover it is the home of the bully. Ringing the bell leads to the losing of teeth and not delivering the pizza results in teenage unemployment.
The question is how does the teen go about delivering the pizza without getting beat up. Ideally it would be best to get another delivery person to deliver the pie, however, the teen cannot go back to the pizza shop and ask another delivery person.
The answer is quite simple. The teen rolls up to the schoolyard and convinces another teen to deliver the pizza for the tip money. The bully gets the pizza, the pizza shop gets the money, the schoolyard teen gets the tip and the teen keep his teeth. The resolution is the act of being a “Virtual Zentity” which is removing one’s self from danger or capture.
This simple analogy is exactly what people who disappear deal with each moment of their day. Think about the society we live in, the digital surveillance, the cell phone surveillance and the camera surveillance in public and private places. We typically assume only big brother has access to these databases, however, that is untrue. A private investigator with a good source or a skip trace with a good pretext can access the private information.
People who disappear tend to rush into or not think through the process of disappearing and such is the their downfall. Disappearing is more than going from point A to point B. It is about evolving into the Cool Hand Luke of disappearing, but also embracing a mindset and philosophy, hence the name ZEN-ENTITY.
In the example above, Ringing the bully’s doorbell would create a connection between the teen and bully. In the world of disappearing, the doorbell represents anything and everything digital. The minute you press a button, be it send, enter or download, you have created a connection that can be traced. The new philosophy I proffer is to remove yourself from the trail or at the very least consciously control the footprints you leave behind on the digital trail.
