So today, we have several important announcements to share:
First off, we are dropping the invitation code requirement so that we can welcome all Android players into our Beta. We look forward to welcoming new Agents into the global Ingress community. Beginning now, you can join the worldwide action by downloading Ingress on Google Play at http://goo.gl/KIshWr
Niantic Labs would also like to thank Agents around the world who have supported us during the beta, so today we are also announcing a special one-time badge: The Founder Medal. All Agents that reach Level 5 by December 14, 2013 will qualify for a special achievement for their early support of the Ingress experience.
Additionally, we are excited to announce The Ingress Elite V challenge. From Monday, November 4 through the culmination of Operation #13MAGNUS on Saturday, December 14, all Ingress Agents will be eligible to participate in this challenge to identify the five (5) most elite Agents from around the world. Measured by a wide set of Ingress performance stats and a creative social media submission, the winning Ingress Agents will be flown to California for Top Secret Ingress briefings in February 2014 and a special interview with from The Ingress Report at http://www.youtube.com/ingress. Details on the Ingress Elite V challenge can be found at http://goo.gl/Cxfo1b
As part of Operation #13MAGNUS, a new chapter in global gameplay is about to emerge: Jarvis Shards. At the beginning of #13MAGNUS the XM entity known as Roland Jarvis was shattered into 13 pieces. These Jarvis Shards scattered throughout the world. Now, Enlightened Agents must reunite them in order resurrect their leader. Resistance Agents will be seeking to destroy the shards, and by doing so, rid the world of Roland Jarvis forever. This effort will literally span the globe as Agents from the over 200 countries where Ingress is currently being played cooperate to achieve their goal, leading to the final confrontation at the end of #13MAGNUS on December 14, 2013.

"Ingress is a game of exploration and discovery in the real world, as well as a way to join in with an amazing global community of Ingress Agents," said , VP in charge of Google’s Niantic Labs. "Our journey over the past year has taken us to live events in more than 80 cities around the world, more than one million downloads of the Ingress app, and more than one million Portals discovered and submitted by Ingress Agents. Two ebooks, a comic book series, and a weekly YouTube show, ‘The Ingress Report’ paint a rich picture of the Ingress world. And Agents have made it their own with more than 2,000 Ingress user communities created on global social networks and countless designs for shirts, badges, jewelry and other objects. More than a dozen Agents have gone so far as to tattoo the Ingress logos on their bodies! A huge thank you to all of the amazing people that have been part of the Ingress journey so far. You have helped make Ingress what it is and have inspired us with so many amazing stories about meeting one another and finding new ways to explore and interact with our world. We can’t wait to see how players continue to make Ingress and the real world a more fun and inspiring place."
Some of my current projects include making a youtube series where I explain at least 100 different concepts with a slinky, using chaotic traversal of discrete structures (graphs in this case) to develop a faster way of N2N (node-to-node) communication, and observing thought pattern homology and consequences varying with the euler characteristic.
Other things I do from time to time or very frequently include rowing, making music, tinkering with electronics, dabbling with computer algorithms emerging from new ideas, and sleep.
