For Trade / Trade Wanted  - 
 
Wanted: Postcards. Or letters. More specifically, something with pictures from wherever you are around the world, addressed to my 4.5 year old daughter, who is learning about the big globe and always asks me "how far away is __?" They don't have to be Ingress-related, but more power to you if they are.

For Trade: A letter in return, complete with a couple UCR flag stickers. If you send a particularly cool/unique letter/postcard, I may even send you a UCR pin or some other swag of some sort. 

(Pins are not guaranteed--at my discretion.)

Circle me and put a comment below if you're interested. I'll send a PM to exchange details on mailing address, etc. and we'll go from there.

*3 years of Ingress*

I can't think of another game that I've played for 3 years. I can't think of another game that has had such an impact on my life - - connecting me with others who I now count as friends, making me drive hours in the middle of the night to help with an operation, "get out and move"ing, and giving me contacts across the globe who share an interest of mine. 

Some of my favorite memories:
- Stealing a dead drop of X7 & X8s near Humboldt Park in the dead of winter '13 when I was L2
- Stealing a key exchange from an ENL meetup I happened to notice in Logan Square, and then introducing myself to a bunch of confused frogs who couldn't figure out why they weren't able to pick up the keys
- Operation Caterpillar Fields -- First BAF over Chicago in Dec '13, before we knew what we were doing, and before we were certain we could do it. A mile-wide lane cleared through the heart of Chicago (I stand by that statement!), though we only managed to get 14 of planned 50 layers up. 
- Chicago Interitus connected cell-- AML, Midway Madness, fish fields, etc. I don't imagine Niantic will ever do a weeklong MU event again, but it was the greatest week of insane awesomeness I've ever experienced. Not sure how I didn't get myself fired that week with the small amount I paid attention to work and the lack of sleep.
- Helios Bike Squad Bravo....(including a unicycle and a skateboard...I seriously don't know how someone could unicycle through Chicago traffic while simultaneously hacking!)
- Darsana Global and No Sleep Ever! (A BAF every night for 2 weeks, somewhere in the world? Why not!?!)

Thanks to everyone who got me started, everyone who kept me going, everyone who pushed me to do a "little bit more", the Great +United Chicagoland Resistance community who I firmly believe is the best local community in all of Ingress, all those who have helped with fields and anomalies and linkstars and shards and fun operations of all sizes, those who introduced me to the global game and running intel on a large scale, and especially the friends I've made in Logumbie.

And I'll even shout out to my opponents, the Enlightened -- without you, the game would be boring, and we wouldn't have a need for the "Anomaly Win" button.

Thanks to +Niantic for making a great game and continuing to pour time and resources into making it better. And for all the employees who made the game great and continue to make the game fantastic, like +Linda Besh, +Ethan Lepouttre , +Brian Rose, +Anne Beuttenmüller, +Matilde Tusberti, +Brandon Badger. (And RIP +Joe Philley -- you are remembered and missed.)

Here's to a long run to come!

I'm looking for a RES Unight16 Patch.

I know they weren't made by the organizers, but a state or two in the US made a patch with this logo...

I never saw the order, and would greatly like to get one. If someone has one and is willing to trade, I'll make something happen. Thanks!

+Chris Blocker It wasn't an "official" Unight16 patch--just some of the states (not sure who). 

I've gotten things settled with Ruth Shepherd above, so this is no longer an open request.

Apparently I paid for them to deserve them, though I don't recall that. Lol.

I have a Hank Johnson Code and a Susanna Moyer Code.

I'm looking for non-character code swag in return. 

If you're a person who craves the character codes but doesn't have one to give in exchange...comment with what you're willing to trade and we'll talk!

United Chicagoland Resistance has a great logo. You've seen it all over the world, whether it's a flag flying over an anomaly site or a patch on a backpack from someone who visited. Now we're making a pin with the UCR logo, and they're available for all to buy.

If you'd like to get in on the pre-order so you don't have to track them down in trade later on, fill out the form below. 

Thanks, and Go UCR!

This. THIS is how you communicate when things go sideways.

At this point, I've written off +caleb wood​ .​ While I've liked his graphic designs and propaganda posters, he will never see another dime of my money until he makes good on this transaction.

I'm very disappointed. Most of all for the sake of folks in Nepal who didn't get the support they needed/still need.

Anyone know a decent charity that is actually still helping with Nepal cleanup/rebuild efforts?

Using a remarkably small radar device on a chip, that has very fine grained resolution and response, to map motion of hands as an input device. 

More than Leap Motion. Waaaaay more than Kinect. This could be amazing. Can't wait to see what Google does with this---hopefully they don't turf it like they did with Glass.
