Here's something I didn't see until Ingress pointed it out: This baseball diamond's backstop, at Cartier Park in Vancouver, was made to look like a theatre curtain. I'd only ever passed by this at night, so during a weekend run, I fired up the app knowing there was a portal nearby, not knowing how special it was. This is now in my "Seen While Playing Ingress" set in Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sillygwailo/sets/72157645610245108/ though I do like the name of the #ActualGameplayFootage hashtag better.

I ended FS with 40,000 AP away from leveling up from L10 to L11 and would have been the tie-breaker for third. I regret not getting closer the night before.
Congratulations to Jakarta, ID Agents for helping Agents increase 12 Access Levels. Thousands of Agents around the globe worked to ramp up new recruits at the Jan 3 Agent-organized Ingress: First Saturday events. If you haven't already, register your Feb 7 #IngressFS today to help Agents work to level up and build Cross-Faction friendships: http://goo.gl/4t5vpH

I did worse than at the previous FS on every count. Time to come up with a different strategy than just smash and capture.
Finally Tally for #IngressFS  - Vancouver (January Edition):

The Enlightened took the victory at the event, even though they were outnumbered 30 to 24.  Huge congrats to them, a well earned victory!

• The final score was 2,733,255 AP gained for the Enlightened and  2,569,110 AP for the Resistance.
• The Resistance came out on top for levels gained, with 6 levels compared to the Enlightened's 2.
• The Resistance also walked away with 4 of the 8 trophies, and the Enlightened with 3 of the trophies.  One trophy was not awarded (my fault, whoops) at the event, but we will be working to award this.  All victors of the trophies will be immortalized on the trophies that they won with plaques!

Rejected edit.
Current name: Cement Sculpture
Submitted name: Ocean Commotion

The name of the kinetic sculpture can be seen on the sign when it was under maintenance. Cement Sculpture doesn't really describe it.

Vancouver came 70th in this past weekend's First Saturday. I contributed 169,486 AP to Vancouver's tally, more than 11% of the total 1,496,722 AP! #Ingress  
#IngressFS 6 Dec 2014 by the numbers: 140+ events, +558 Levels, +355,739,195 AP. This month’s top Access Level change reported in Chiba, JP with +32 Levels. Chiba and Kyoto Agents, be on the lookout for the next XM Anomaly Series. It's time to move.

Ingress: The Incredible & Addicting Covert Game Being Played All Around You
/via +louisgray.com  #ingress  

+Ingress is the most well-designed, intelligently deployed concept I've ever seen for an immersive experience on mobile, which encourages you to get off your butt, explore the world around you, and find new people to help you achieve goals together. Every facet of the application, even while it seems mysterious, is designed to help you get out of house, to explore new crannies of your neighborhood (and beyond) and discover people on your faction who need your help to achieve what would be impossible alone. I've never seen anything like it.

Quite a few Ingress-related IFTTT recipes out there, the interesting ones relying on the email notifications.

Hooray! I got to level 9 just in time to get that sweet silver Innovator medal. I can't wait to eat that medal!
