Remember that Dharma game that’s been running the last few months, only to be sold?
Well, they’ve started posting videos. Nothing really new about next season yet, but you can take a look at:

ATTENTION ALL RECRUITS
RE: SECURITY BREACH AT COMIC-CON 2008
As many of you may be aware there have been a number of security breaches in recent days related to the nature of the Dharma Initiative’s latest research.
Apart from the leak of a sensitive internal communication there was also the unauthorized release of confidential video documentation during a sponsored panel discussion with the makers of the TV show “LOST” at Comic-Con 2008 in San Diego. Consequently, the person responsible for this breach, a promising recruit by the name of Dan Bronson, has been expelled from the volunteer program and had his Dharma Initiative membership permanently revoked. Furthermore, the Dharma Initiative has withdrawn their sponsorship from “LOST”.
The Dharma Initiative must stress that the video material leaked at Comic-Con 2008 was viewed entirely out of context. Furthermore, the way in which the material was presented utterly distorted its significance and credibility as scientific data.
The Dharma Initiative is extremely disappointed with this outcome and has ordered a security audit of all departments. As part of this audit the DharmaWantsYou recruiting website will undergo a security upgrade in the next few days.
Upon completion of this upgrade a date will be announced for the official commencement of Volunteer Assessments.
All recruits are reminded that the unauthorized release of confidential information pertaining to the details of your activities within the Dharma Initiative will result in instant dismissal from the volunteer program.
Hans Van Eeghen
Head of Recruiting
The Dharma Initiative
I posted the video of the Dharma Security Breach earlier.
The Dharma Initiative is looking for new recruits. If you’re interested, check out their web site and register as a volunteer. Just takes a quick 17 question test.
(There are a LOT of people hitting the site right now, and it seems to be having problems, so be aware of that if you try and register).
I just watched the show, and caught a couple of Easter Eggs in tonight’s show, Catch-22.
The book that Desmond found was Ardil-22, the Portuguese translation of Catch-22.
The picture on the monk’s desk showed the lady from the shop where Desmond tried to by the ring – the lady that knew all about Desmond in his previous flashback episode.
All add more as I find them.
The Boston globe has a brief story that reveals
the actress playing Rachel Blake this past summer is Jamie Silberhartz. It also says that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were the people behind the whole Lost Experience this past summer.
I’ve already mentioned the message from Alvar Hanso in an earlier post. I’ve just found an additional message, from Thomas Mittelwerk, the person that took over The Hanso Foundation from Alvar Hanso.
You can see it for yourself at The Hanso Foundation website. Once you see the letter, click on the world “humanity”. Clicking on it will change the screen, and post a faded animation of Thomas Mittelwerk who give the following message:
You’ve taken a battle, but that’s all it was – a battle. Humanity needs me, now more than ever. I have the virus, I have the will, and I will not fail.
The message repeats until you click on the picture. It will then return you to Hanso’s letter.
The Hanso Foundation website has been updated with a statement from Alvar Hanso. I’m including the statement below, just to be sure you see it (and in case it gets taken down)
Statement from Alvar Hanso
The path of secrecy is a slippery slope. While necessity may dictate, at times, that we shade
ourselves and our work from the all-too-often harsh light of inquiry, habitual secret-keeping
can mire even the noblest of intentions in shadow. It is this shadow I fell prey to, blinded not
only to the action of colleagues like Dr. Thomas Werner Mittelwerk, but also to the
works of my own hand.
I fear the lessons learned have cost many their happiness. Some few have even lost their lives.
My regret for this is endless. But, I assure you now, as I did then, that the work of The Hanso
Foundation has always been intended to bring rebirth to a dying land and a dying people.
Our methods must change. As of this moment, The Hanso Foundation enters a period of
restructure and overhal. Transparency and oversight will be our guiding principles,
excellence in communication and response to feedback our greatest strengths.
To save humanity, we need first tap into just that — our humanity.
Much time has passed — perhaps too much. Thanks to the tireless efforts of my daughter,
Rachel Blake, and a worldwide movement set against the dark entity that was Thomas
Mittlewerk’s regime, I have been exonerated and freed from imprisonment. Thanks to the
grace and foresight of the Global Welfare Consortium, we at The Hanso Foundation have
been given a second chance to build a future that can support, enrich and cradle us all in
peace and joy.
It is to this I dedicate my life and my Foundation. My only hope is that you will join me.
BIG Spoiler ahead! Don’t read this if you don’t want to know something big about Lost!
If you’ve been playing the Lost Experience over the web this past summer, you have probably already seen the really big Lost Spoiler from the HansoExposed website.
Tonight, about 10 minutes ago, the very last part of the tape was posted the front page of ABC.com. The first part was the spoiler mentioned earlier; the NEW part of the video was Rachel Blake going to Narvik, Norway to meet with someone…. Alvar Hanso! He knew what lead her there, and told her that in spite of the fact that she found out that the Hanso Foundation helped her mother with funds to raise Rachel, Rachel kept digging to find Alvar Hanso. Hanso himself told her that he’s her father! He’s being held hostage by Mittlewerk, and urged her to expose Mittlewerk’s plans.
Rachel Blake was on the DJ Dan podcast earlier tonight, and pointed people there. You have to listen to about an hour and a half of the podcast in order to get to the part where Rachel points you to ABC.com.
It should be on the ABC.com website for a while, so go check it out!
Another tidbit related to this…. as DJ Dan talked to Rachel Blake, and was just getting her to talk about “what happened in Norway”, one of the producers of his show cut in with a phone call from someone named “James” who said he hacked into an audio link. The audio was of some sort of military operation that was designed to capture Mittlewerk. When the agents got there, they found that it was a trap. Mittlewerk’s voice was played telling them to get out, and then there was a large explosion. This was right before Rachel said to go to ABC.com
For those of you who’ve been playing the Lost Experience game over the summer on the web, here’s a message that I just received via e-mail from “Rachel Blake”:
OKAY, EVERYBODY. THIS IS IT. YOU'VE FOUND OVER
1000 APOLLO BARS. I KNOW NOW THAT THE WHOLE
WORLD IS WATCHING...
GO TO WWW.WHEREISALVAR.COM
Going to WWW.WHEREISALVAR.COM will get you a message that says:
YOU'VE STUCK WITH ME. SHOWN YOUR SUPPORT. FOUGHT
THE HANSO FOUNDATION TOOTH AND NAIL.
NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE WHOLE TRUTH. ABOUT THEM.
TUNE IN TO DJ DAN SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 AT 8PM PST,
AND HELP ME, ONCE AND FOR ALL... TO SHUT IT ALL DOWN!
Be sure and check out the http://www.djdan.am/ site on Sunday, Sept 24th!
