#Unight16  

Unight 16 - One World. One Cause

The slogan of #Unight16   reflects the unity of all the #Resistance communities around the world. Global Operation #Unight16   was inspired from #Unight8   which was held last year. The inspiration continues as collaboration from South East Asia countries namely Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia came up with two plans for #Unight16SEA  ; 

1) to blanket the region with blue fields and
2) to build Level 8 portals in the cities within those countries.

It all started on a scorching hot Sunday afternoon on the 25th of January 2015, usually weekends are dedicated for family and friends. However, our local #Resistance   communities sacrificed their personal time on that day to join forces with fellow #resistance   agents to complete both operations.

P8 On-The-Go
--------------------------------
Numerous #Resistance   agents including new agents gathered together to build Level 8 portal as they move along the city. The event took place at 11:00 (+8 GMT) till 18:00 (+8 GMT) where Level 8 agents moved together to build Level 8 portals around the Kuala Lumpur city. Special thanks goes out to  agent @deAngeL for driving her MPV along with 6 other agents to deploy their Level 8 resonators on pre-built portals.

The adventure began from Kota Kemuning - Subang - Petaling Jaya till Kuala Lumpur section. 
Deployment of Level 8 resonators began from Kota Kemuning. After that the agents headed out to the Subang area  to pick up agent @adyboy, and @CodeU9305767. They cleared and built up the Subang area but they didn't fully build Level 8 portals as traffic was bad. So they headed out to fetch agent @polarx and began building Level 8 portals around his area. The team then proceed to Oasis, Ara Damansara to deploy their Level 8 resonators before progressing to Citta Mall to join with other groups. From Citta Mall agent @kbng11 took over the wheel and continued to clear out enemy portals and build along the route from cluster to cluster.

Ipoh town Resistance also joined the OPS as they had pre-built level portals since 23rd January 2015. However, the portals did not last till 18:00 (+8 GMT) as they were completely taken down by local ENL agents.

Johor state Resistance managed to build 150 Level 8 portals even though facing a shortage of manpower as most of the local agents were involved in “blanket the region” operation.

The final number of Level 8 portals built were not captured precisely as Intel team faced difficulties in loading the Intel Map during the operation. This was due to server congestion which was a direct result of simultaneous Operation #Unight16   global activity. Resistance Malaysia teams managed to build 500 Level 8 portals at the peak of the operation.

Blanket The Region
----------------------------------
The plan to pull up multiple layered fields across the region covering West and East Malaysia and Singapore was conceived by Resistance agents around the neighboring countries (Malaysia - Indonesia - Singapore). A month of tactical and strategic planning by agents @wywy, @Cass, @NS1 @razumi, @Grounde @Tjoe and @MiloAis lead to the hour of reckoning on 25th January 2015.

The Pre-Ops team were coordinated and wrecked havoc by taking down blocking links as early as 11:30 (+8 GMT). Fielding teams from Resistance Malaysia and Resistance Singapore successful yield total of 25,506,238MU.

However due the ghost field/link remained for a few hours due to Niantic server congestion, Singapore was partially uncovered in a furious blue sea of fields. 

Originally, larger fields that was planned that did not come to fruition because it was impossible to take down one particular blocker down in time. The agents from the teams involved with the fields are the unsung heroes of the Operation and we salute the team who put in the valiant effort to clear the lanes for the fields. Oh yeah, about those larger fields that didn't made it? Until next time agents. Surely it will be done in near the future. Stay tuned.

After what was such a terrible week in Sydney, people have come from all over to mourn the tragic event. The outpouring of grief, compassion and solidarity shown between people of all races and faiths has been nothing short of astounding. Just in kind, both factions in Sydney have created a tribute over Martin place of their own. Cross faction field art in the shape of a heart over the site.

It is a good reminder that we are all playing this game that we love for many different reasons, we have many different cultural backgrounds and many have their own personal struggles in life. But that should not detract from the basics that we are are all in this together no matter whether we are blue or green. Be excellent to each other :) #ingress   #martinplacetribute

Dizzying but invisible depth

You just went to the Google home page.

Simple, isn't it?

What just actually happened?

Well, when you know a bit of about how browsers work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play HTTP, HTML, CSS, ECMAscript, and more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.

Let's simplify.

You just connected your computer to www.google.com.

Simple, isn't it?

What just actually happened?

Well, when you know a bit about how networks work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play DNS, TCP, UDP, IP, Wifi, Ethernet, DOCSIS, OC, SONET, and more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.

Let's simplify.

You just typed www.google.com in the location bar of your browser.

Simple, isn't it?

What just actually happened?

Well, when you know a bit about how operating systems work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play a kernel, a USB host stack, an input dispatcher, an event handler, a font hinter, a sub-pixel rasterizer, a windowing system, a graphics driver, and more, all of those written in high-level languages that get processed by compilers, linkers, optimizers, interpreters, and more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.

Let's simplify.

You just pressed a key on your keyboard.

Simple, isn't it?

What just actually happened?

Well, when you know about bit about how input peripherals work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play a power regulator, a debouncer, an input multiplexer, a USB device stack, a USB hub stack, all of that implemented in a single chip. That chip is built around thinly sliced wafers of highly purified single-crystal silicon ingot, doped with minute quantities of other atoms that are blasted into the crystal structure, interconnected with multiple layers of aluminum or copper, that are deposited according to patterns of high-energy ultraviolet light that are focused to a precision of a fraction of a micron, connected to the outside world via thin gold wires, all inside a packaging made of a dimensionally and thermally stable resin. The doping patterns and the interconnects implement transistors, which are grouped together to create logic gates. In some parts of the chip, logic gates are combined to create arithmetic and bitwise functions, which are combined to create an ALU. In another part of the chip, logic gates are combined into bistable loops, which are lined up into rows, which are combined with selectors to create a register bank. In another part of the chip, logic gates are combined into bus controllers and instruction decoders and microcode to create an execution scheduler. In another part of the chip, they're combined into address and data multiplexers and timing circuitry to create a memory controller. There's even more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.

Can we simplify further?

In fact, very scarily, no, we can't. We can barely comprehend the complexity of a single chip in a computer keyboard, and yet there's no simpler level. The next step takes us to the software that is used to design the chip's logic, and that software itself has a level of complexity that requires to go back to the top of the loop.

Today's computers are so complex that they can only be designed and manufactured with slightly less complex computers. In turn the computers used for the design and manufacture are so complex that they themselves can only be designed and manufactured with slightly less complex computers. You'd have to go through many such loops to get back to a level that could possibly be re-built from scratch.

Once you start to understand how our modern devices work and how they're created, it's impossible to not be dizzy about the depth of everything that's involved, and to not be in awe about the fact that they work at all, when Murphy's law says that they simply shouldn't possibly work.

For non-technologists, this is all a black box. That is a great success of technology: all those layers of complexity are entirely hidden and people can use them without even knowing that they exist at all. That is the reason why many people can find computers so frustrating to use: there are so many things that can possibly go wrong that some of them inevitably will, but the complexity goes so deep that it's impossible for most users to be able to do anything about any error.

That is also why it's so hard for technologists and non-technologists to communicate together: technologists know too much about too many layers and non-technologists know too little about too few layers to be able to establish effective direct communication. The gap is so large that it's not even possible any more to have a single person be an intermediate between those two groups, and that's why e.g. we end up with those convoluted technical support call centers and their multiple tiers. Without such deep support structures, you end up with the frustrating situation that we see when end users have access to a bug database that is directly used by engineers: neither the end users nor the engineers get the information that they need to accomplish their goals.

That is why the mainstream press and the general population has talked so much about Steve Jobs' death and comparatively so little about Dennis Ritchie's: Steve's influence was at a layer that most people could see, while Dennis' was much deeper. On the one hand, I can imagine where the computing world would be without the work that Jobs did and the people he inspired: probably a bit less shiny, a bit more beige, a bit more square. Deep inside, though, our devices would still work the same way and do the same things. On the other hand, I literally can't imagine where the computing world would be without the work that Ritchie did and the people he inspired. By the mid 80s, Ritchie's influence had taken over, and even back then very little remained of the pre-Ritchie world.

Finally, last but not least, that is why our patent system is broken: technology has done such an amazing job at hiding its complexity that the people regulating and running the patent system are barely even aware of the complexity of what they're regulating and running. That's the ultimate bikeshedding: just like the proverbial discussions in the town hall about a nuclear power plant end up being about the paint color for the plant's bike shed, the patent discussions about modern computing systems end up being about screen sizes and icon ordering, because in both cases those are the only aspect that the people involved in the discussion are capable of discussing, even though they are irrelevant to the actual function of the overall system being discussed.

One World, One Cause

#Singapore was called upon to support global Operation #Unight16  
The goal of Unight16 was an expansion of the same aspirations of Unight8, a demonstration of unity and strength across the Resistance communities around the world.
Despite hosting the BRRN summit on the same weekend, we decided to make supporting the Ops part of the itinerary and got to work on the planning of P8 builds, as well as local and regional fields.

New blood in the Singapore Resistance were very much at the heart of the planning and execution of this night of scanner breaking resistance action.

We’d like to congratulate
@DynastyWarrior
@Felicitous
@jostake
@LeFatDuckie
@MaximusGoliath
@Serendaire
@Shadowyfm
@tingzhb
@vai5061
@ynwa1892
on their first time planning, coordinating and leading the P8 build teams and local field operations for a major global operation.

P8 Roll
87 agents split into 6 teams built a total of 2105 L8 portals were built from the start of the Operation on 24 Jan 2200(+8GMT), with a peak of 1258 L8 portals standing at 25 Jan 1800(+8GMT)

Local Fields
@MaximusGoliath&@Shadowyfm were tasked with planning local fields within Singapore.

@MaximusGoliath proceeded to perform a solo operation, clearing links and forming 21 stacks of fields over the North Eastern region of Singapore, totaling 512,260MU.
http://bit.ly/U16_SG_NE

@ShadoWyfm’s team formed 5 stacks of fields covering the West of Singapore with a base link stretching from the West most point of mainland Singapore in Tuas, to the Botanical Gardens in the center of Singapore. With agent @nattieta&@aimlesscomet clearing the link lanes and agents @Echlori, @SilenceSoul, @mirradric, @ShadoWyfm, @Felicitous, @casino89, @dr0idman, @PakElite, @ynwa1892, @edisonc and @shortshort standing by at the respective anchors, the fields were thrown at 1747(+8GMT) yielding 1,758,720MU. Even as a spoofer attacked and downed the main North-most anchor, there was a contingency anchor further North which was fielded for an additional 366,639MU.
http://bit.ly/U16_SG_NW

Regional Field
In coordination with our partners in Malaysia and Indonesia,@wywy, @Cass, @NS1 @razumi, @Grounde @Tjoe&@MiloAis coordinated regional fields spanning Endau, Karimun, Kundur & Kelantan, yielding a total of 25,506,238MU.
http://bit.ly/U16_SEA_MYSG

Unfortunately, at 1759(+8GMT), ghost links which lasted for 15 minutes after the portal was taken down by @Daltonus prevented the team from closing the field which would have covered Singapore.
http://bit.ly/U16_SEA_Ghost
Ghost link details
@1759(+8GMT) Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal - https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=1.314409,103.988545&z=17&pll=1.314409,103.988545

The ghost links have been acknowledged by Niantic officially as seen here.
https://plus.google.com/113403174138299253670/posts/MBee2wdWVS5

This allowed ENL agents to set up blocking links in Batam. Even after @Tjoe took these blockers out, the ghost links from these blockers remained for a further 2 hours.
Ghost link details
@1821(+7GMT) Carved Roof Top http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=1.12748,104.057442&z=18&pll=1.12748,104.057442
@1824(+7GMT) Batam International Terminal http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=1.130684,104.05518&z=16&pll=1.130684,104.05518

There were even larger fields planned that did not come to fruition because it was not possible to take a particular blocker down in time. The agents from the team involved with these fields are the unsung heroes of the Operation and we salute the team who put in the effort to clear the lanes for this field. You will see this happen some time in the future.

We’d also like to thank our overseas visitors who joined us in turning Singapore blue for #Unight16

@SchrodingerMao
@Happybelly78

@lafflecookie
@WillPansutd
@RyuJins
@chikidi28
and too many others to mention.

It’s a shame that these worthy adversaries have their efforts sullied by some individuals who operated over a dozen spoof accounts to destroy the L8 Resistance portals created.

This is a more complete and ranked list of ENL agents that were involved in the battle: http://bit.ly/U16_SG_RP8smash

It’s worth noting even with the amount of spoofers ‘flying’ around, our L8 portal counts continued rising all the way to the end of the Operation
at 25 Jan 1800 (+8GMT). This is a testament to the resilience and determination of our agents in the face of adversity.
