Un-Google Yourself - Wired How-To Wiki

Sign of the times – see the full article for tips on controlling personal content.  Perhaps the “slave flash” will be a hot holiday gift category…

However, the best way to avoid compromising situations online is to avoid compromising situations in real life. We're not saying not to have any fun, but until you are able to keep people from taking digital photos of you, you're stuck behaving properly in public. Look on the bright side, your online self is keeping you honest, right?

There is one bit of technology that will help you control what pictures are taken of you in the future: A slave flash. It's not state-of-the-art, photographers have been using slave flashes for years to get light in angles a regular flash won't. A slave flash will see the flash being directed at you by the paparazzi and instantly trigger its own flash. If the cameras pointed at you just so happen to also be pointed at the slave flash, the photo is ruined.
