I remember speaking about basic "crowd control" techniques here: give your enemies some little puny dummy fields to break, keep them busy with some specific portals (leveraging their ownership-related and battle-related ego) ...

Interesting! What do you think they would cover? Gameplay reality? Back story? A person steps thru a portal while playing a game and ends up in the back story?

+Ethan Lepouttre​​​​ on +Portalside Chat​​​​!
Ethan is great, if you ever went to a NL1331 Meetup you know and love him!
He tells the best anomaly stories! I'm always laughing so hard when he is around telling stories. He has been a super amazing friend and coworker!

Another blog that is a must read if you follow the back story. It is written by +Felicia Hajra-Lee​ writer of The Niantic Project Ingress book which at the time she did not know that everything she wrote would come to pass. How does Felicia's writing tell the future? Definitely a blog you need to follow to find out!

I don't know the whole story behind this... Steve was running a contest, lol.

But I like the Red Glitter Letters +Steve Cheek​​. I want to see picture of the winner wearing it!
I never knew I had fan club!
 
If you really don't believe I won't do something i threaten, this is the result. Follow-up pictures coming when this thing gets to its home.

And yes, that's red glitter text.

Scary story. When I ordered breakfast at the hotel in Pasadena this morning I ordered crispy bacon. The waitress said. "So weird, we have got soooo many orders this morning for crispy bacon, I wonder why?"
I looked around the restaurant, suddenly suspicious, and leaned towards the waitress and whispered "Shōnin!" , finished breakfast and then quietly slipped out of there. Close call!!

And if you're looking to exchange intel over breakfast, be warned... tomorrow they are having an all the bacon you can eat special on the buffet!
