A counter-culture person or group of people who live without any official numbers or documentation for the sake of privacy.

A person who refuses 21st century technology tracking and other identity filing-stealing systems that normal folk use in daily life. This person wants to live a life that is as hidden (blank) from existance as possible.

The 'blank' wants no attention from 'Big Brother,' 'the establishment,' 'the man,' 'the system,' or whatever global totalitarian watchdog in which you believe.

This person refuses to: use credit cards, use internet identity systems, vote, and probably keeps only a PO Box. Blanks might refuse to pay taxes, hiding from IRS, FBI, and only does business in cash. Blanks rely on pre-computer business methods and probably own lots of books instead of being wired in like everyone else.

According to the Max Headroom TV series cyberpunk universe (1987–1988): A blank is a citizen not indexed in anyone's database. (wikipedia)
"The Blanks" (1987) is also an episode of the series.

Don't confuse this group with illegal aliens, criminal sleeper cells, or gangs that are also outcasts from normal society. Blanks just can't stand the hypocracy of society and the control it has over most people, and they won't jump through the hoops and give away their freedoms like the rest of us sheep.
After a solid college education, Jacob gave up the prospect of being a corporate suit. Instead, he made money off the stock market, vacationed in any country he chose, paid everything in cash, didn't own a car, and carried his life in a backpack. He wan't a bum. He was a "blank," and he liked it that way.

To take whatever you’re doing to extreme measures.

Blank was created in Charlotte, NC during the mid 90s/early 2000s. In the same era and city, the word was also used to describe a dance in which a person squats down and makes various hand motions to a certain rhythm.
In Charlotte, Tradewinds was the place to roller skate and dance afterwards. We battled to see who could blank the hardest on the dance floor.
