Um Pyro I think you might have to cut down that comment massively. Rebecca's extremely paranoid right now about New Light spying on her and your comment on her post isn't exactly helping things at all.

You're advising her to keep on spying on them and act like a normal employee, even when she's scared right now. And if you think that New Light has surveillance everywhere, why in the world would you so easily comment and ask to do all this? That would just make New Light all the more suspicious of her and possibly even target her.

Also you're making a lot of unnecessary references to Frozen and Sherlock Holmes too. She knows what a facade is, she knows what it means to act discreetly, why do you need to tell her this all? I don't see a point to do this.

Yeah it's slightly better now Pyro.

That's ok Narra. I'm just taking issue because Pyro's comment kinda puts Rebecca in danger because he's suggesting to her so blatantly to spy on the organisation even though they could be spying on her own blog page.

Well, I didn't pay much attention to it the first time through, but from the pure audio, I think it's just Beth discussing something about dehydrated food. There might be something hidden on the audio, but I guess we'll have to wait for that.
Why should we do the right thing?

Hmm yeah, it's just Beth talking breifly about New Light's history and products.

The dehydrated food not exactly being like astronaut food. New Light was founded 25 years ago in 1989 by a bunch of kids out a of college.

Also Beth is British but that isn't important *cough*evil brit*cough*

Video highlights

Title: Beth and the Bastion Interns
Bastion Institute's podcast. Host: Issac Imbala (Digital Media Production).

  1. Beth is the head of the board of directors and the founder of New Light. As far as I can judge, she has a faint British accent.
  2. New Light was founded 25 years ago (1989, if the number was precise) by a bunch of college kids (including Beth, apparently).
  3. She said "I was one of the founders back in the late 90s", which does not match the date above, and may imply that Beth joined New Light later.
  4. The company started by developing internet technology.
  5. New Light went public because of money.
  6. Their current official product under development is some tofu-like dehydrated food product for starving countries. It works on the same principles as the Smart Soil (Think Tank?), and is cheaper than NASA's space rations.
  7. The company is expanding rapidly. Beth said "with the advances we're making, I doubt anything could possibly stop us". Gee, I wonder if she meant something else by that. :evil:
  8. The podcast ended pointing to the New Light blog, saying that it contains current projects, contact details, staff application and the like. I re-examined the blog, and didn't find any of that, except for a link to their G+ page (it mirrors the blog posts).

I'm not going to follow the G+ page, by the way. Unless it becomes vital (in which case I'll create a fake account), there's no way I'm giving them my name. :?

Also, I don't think there's any hidden content. Considering, however, that it was edited by Becky, she might have put some stuff there. I'll have another look and post if I see anything.

UPD: I don't think there's anything actually important, but here's my pixelhunting report.
  1. The rotating camera part references this site. Apparently, it's a stock footage site, or something like that.
  2. The front of the camera says: "LENS SERIES E" / "86<superscript>c70/1". It's for the sake of completeness, I don't think it's important.
  3. A slight audio editing artifact on 0:48 (after "I'll be"), another at 3:40 (after "interviewing you again").
  4. Heard a mouse click at 1:24, and some different click at 1:46.

Given what that audio recording said, it's entirely possible that you will get your tofu Pyro (also pleased stop wall of texting entire comments, it's kind of irritating.)

(For those who are wondering, those sound like lower-country accents. So Beth was born somewhere close to the midlands.)

So nothing hidden in this one?
They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

He's keeping tabs on Newlight's progress in the post-apocalyptic future.

Guys, Rebecca's twitter profile doesn't exist anymore.

Her Livejournal still exists: http://deckygirl.livejournal.com/

As does the video she posted by New Light.

Now we can assume two things, this thing is still on and she's went off the grid or whoever's controlling this game has deleted the account meaning this thing might as well be over.

I highly doubt this thing may be over-it's entirely probable that Twitter is easier to track than Livejournal, and it looks like she did take our advice and go off the grid.

However, if it is over, let it be.
