Hello everyone! The Martinsville Reporter Times here in Indiana interviewed me about +Ingress after I wrote in a submission about it. Here I am with the article on the front page.  I was nervous that I would represent well enough and the article turned out great. 

Viva La Resistance!

MOORESVILLE

European scientists have discovered an enigmatic energy in the Earth that appears to be infiltrating the way humans think and act.  Two warring factions are vying for control over the population as invisible aliens threaten humanity’s livelihood. 
This isn’t the synopsis of a summer science fiction blockbuster, but the setting for a game that is being played in real time all over the world, including Mooresville’s Pioneer Park. 
For players of Ingress, an augmented reality massive multi-player online game, the park contains several points that may be utilized to signal their side’s dominance. It is like a combination of geocaching and capture the flag. After creating an account and downloading the game to any Android device - it is scheduled to be available for Apple’s iOS later this year - players establish “portals” at historical, cultural or artistic landmarks.  
“It takes place in this world, just with a different storyline behind it,” Andrew Trimmell, Mooresville, said he has established “about 95 percent” of the portals at Pioneer Park. 
When the Google Maps generated interface indicates that a player is near a portal, they can take control of it for their faction. Exotic matter (XM) is the game’s life force. A user gathers XM by walking around from portal to portal.  XM is necessary for any action in the game, including claiming a portal for a designated period of time.  A member of one group can diminish the XM that an opposing group member has put into a portal and declare it theirs.  
The two factions that are at odds in the Ingress world are the Enlightened and the Resistance. A mysterious breed of alien that is never seen nor described called the “Shapers” are attempting to mentally manipulate the population.
The Enlightened side with the Shapers and believe they are on a mission to enlighten and uplift the human race. The Resistance wants to protect humanity from Shaper ingression and preserve freedom. Players can determine which side they want to join.
Fourteen months ago, Trimmell arbitrarily joined the Resistance when he was invited to test the beta version of Ingress by another player. It was released officially in December 2013 and since he has been playing it, Trimmell has walked 256 miles going from portal to portal, which is logged within the game’s application.  
Trimmell’s high mileage demonstrates what differentiates Ingress from other mobile device games: to participate, players must walk around from portal to portal in real life. The game happens in real time and users have the ability to change the storyline.
“I am much more active now that I play Ingress,” Trimmell said. He now goes to Pioneer Park about two times a week, often bringing his 3-year-old daughter, <redacted>.  
“It’s great because she can play in the park and I can play the game,” he said.
About four or five months after Trimmell began playing, his wife, Allisa was persuaded to begin playing as well.
“It’s a really great social activity because when I go to the different portals, I’ll meet other people who are playing the game,” Trimmell
said.
There are many groups around Indiana of Ingress players who meet up to play the game and socialize. Trimmell said Google+ was Ingress users’ social media platform of choice.
Users can submit portals by naming a location and uploading a photo. A three-to-five month approval process will determine whether it is worthy of entering the game’s interface. Most of the portals are historically, architecturally or culturally important or somehow unique to the area.
In Mooresville, some of the portals are Ralph and Ava’s Café and the Veterans Memorial. Martinsville portals include Kivett’s Five and Dime and the Morgan County Public Library.
Google uses information submitted by players about portals to generate content for the application Field Trip, which highlights places of interest for users to visit in any given town or area.
“I’ve learned about cool places in Mooresville that I didn’t even know existed by playing Ingress,” Trimmell said. “And I’ve lived here my whole life.”
Trimmell has seen Ingress users of all ages and walks of life and hopes that more Morgan County residents will join the over one million active users worldwide.

For the First Saturday event, I'm bringing my little brother (17), who has autism. So he doesn't feel overwhelmed or pressured to talk to people he's not used to, he's going to have a set of the badges made (see the link). Green means he's open to anyone coming up to him and talking, yellow means he only wants to be approached by those he knows already, and red means he doesn't want to be approached by anyone. No matter what color he has visible, he can try to approach people to chat or ask questions, though he probably won't. He's very shy in group outings, but he's excited about this event. The meaning will be written on his cards, but I just wanted to put it here ahead of time so people would have a bit of a heads up.

Well, here's my update on it. The Kiddo had a blast, even though he did not like the wind or the temperature. While he was still on the quiet side, he seemed more like how he is at home with the badge set, so we are considering it a major success.

l just downloaded the app on my Asus Memo Pad, & I'm surprised that it is really good at translating my chicken- scratch / doctor scribble. The only issue I have is that it doesn't always read punctuation correctly. Now, to find my stylus & see how much better it is than my finger!
