I came across this presentation by Evan Ratliff about Wired’s Vanish contest. I’d never seen and it was nice to hear him share the story.

Ratliff has had a big year, his startup publishing platform Atavist was acquired by WordPress’s corporate parent, Auttomatic and he has a new book out, Mastermind:

The incredible true story of the decade-long quest to bring down Paul Le Roux—the creator of a frighteningly powerful Internet-enabled cartel who merged the ruthlessness of a drug lord with the technological savvy of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur


Evan’s a skilled investigative reporter and gifted writer.
