Dharma Responds To Security Breach


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 Furthermore, the Dharma Initiative has withdrawn their sponsorship from “LOST”.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.

FlyOceanicAir.com and Find815.com – New LOST websites!

Lost Logo
There’s a new web game going on, and if you’re a LOST fan, you should be playing.

I was just watching the SciFi channel, and a “commercial” for Oceanic Air came on!

It said to go to FlyOceanicAir.com. I did. If you’ve been there before, you should go again. There’s a new message at the site.

After viewing it, go to Find815.com. There are some videos, and a couple of places to explore. I’ve gotten through all the material available so far, and I’ll be posting all the thing I’ve found on a special page tomorrow.

In the mean time, check it out!

Lost: The Video Game Details revealed

Electronic gaming monthly has more details on Ubisoft’s Lost video game.   The central character of the game isn’t one of the main characters from the show.  You’ll play a photo-journalist with amnesia, trying to figure out what happened to your memory, and why you’re on the island.   You’ll interact with the main characters from the show, dodge The Others andThe Smoke Monster, and solve puzzles along the way.

The game’s story was plotted by Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, the executive producers for LOST, and it’s due out early next year.

The Business Behind ‘Lost’

Lost The Game

The New York Times is running an article that discusses the merchandising and business behind ‘Lost’, which is a lot larger than I had imagined.

The article talks about the many products that have been created for the show. I thought it was interesting that some of the books by other authors were books that which Lindelof didn’t like very much. ABC merchandising commissioned them. So, they created Bad Twin the book we saw Sawyer reading last year, and put hints about what was going on in the show in there.

There’s Lost – The Game, Lost T-shirts, trading cards, Lost figurines (created by Todd McFarlane), Lost puzzles, and more.

As previously mentioned, they’re writing 13 Webisodes for Lost, and the article talks a bit about the other shows (CSI, 24, The Office) that are doing, or wanting to do the same thing.

Well worth reading.
