Continuing the public records story:
South Florida Business Journal again reports on Hank Asher and says the Autotrack/Accurint founder is now working on a new project that will 'end identity theft'.

The radio:
I think the radio interview went well. Thanks to host Joseph Cooper for great questions, and for some gracious callers including a dear friend. (Happy Birthday, Les, again!) It was nice to hear the positive response to the help a researcher can give to a story, and a fun combination of talking about the past and hearing from old friends and appreciative reporters.


  • I can't help it. It's been building for months now and it's reached critical mass.

    Hank Asher - colorful, compassionate, sometimes volatile entrepreneur, driven genius, philanthropist, altruist ... drug smuggler???

    Short of running for President, I really don't know what the man could do to generate any more controversy. How is it that one human being with so much energy, so many good ideas and a proven (not speculated but proven) record of philanthropy can be dogged by the wisps of ghosts of a drug smuggling past?

    The Hank Asher Watch continues...

  • What an amazing man, I would like to wish him all the best. Isn't it fascinating that human nature makes us look for bad in someone who has done so much good.

  • I first read of Hank Asher in a recent Vanity Fair article.

    I have to say that I was very moved by the article. I have such respect for this magazine. They provide well researched, in depth articles.

    I think Ernest Svenson said it best. "If you start reading the article then don't allow yourself to form any opinion about Asher until you've read the entire thing. And if want to condemn Asher without reading the article, that's certainly your perogative. Everyone has a right to remain ignorant, a right that even the Internet can't diminish."
