According to Google, I was a woman from 1997-2003. Wired magazine posts a guide on how to decouple yourself from Google.

Un-Google yourself by removing all your data from the internet? That hardly seems like a realistic solution to me.

Gee, I never realised how cool I am, let's see:

A Real Estate agent
A UFOlogist
A Parliamentarian
A Professor
A Doctor of Psychology
A Footballer (in their dreams!)

Guess I'm just lucky to have a reasonably common name, I'm probably buried 30+ pages deep within any of Googles search results if I even appear.....which is fine by me :)

I laugh at that solution, too, since even my brother, who's in prison and has no access to computers, is on google! Just because you take your stuff offline doesn't mean others are going to do the same for you.

So you're saying the ATF/FBI are going to have to kick down a lot of doors just to find you?!   :P

Yep, and by the time they get to Australia I'm sure their legs will be a few inches shorter :)
