Just received another e-mail from timekeeperstories[at]gmail[dot]com:

Dear Trusted Friends,

Some of you have contacted me directly, others come recommended from a friend.

I have decided to leave the comfort of my current home and job and travel to Washington D.C. to see if I can track down my father. I was born an American citizen to American parents who are children of Dutch immigrants (confusing, I know). My parents were living overseas when I was born and I have spent a great deal of time both in the United States and abroad.

I don't know if my father is in D.C., I haven't heard from him in a year, but I figure it's a good place to begin my search.

I will need your help in several ways. First of all, my father left behind several clues as to how to contact him in an emergency. These are not straightforward contacts by any stretch of the imagination, rather they are what you might call rabbit holes which lead deeper into more clues. He obviously did not want to make it easy to be found. I do not expect finding him to be a fast or easy process, but I'm hoping for some confirmation that I'm on the right track.

My first task is to find a man my father calls Attis (this is not his real name, of course). I know for sure that he lives and works in Washington, D.C. but I have no idea where to begin looking for him. This is where you come in. My father gave his contacts nicknames as clues to how or where they might be found.

As I travel I will stay in touch via email. If you choose not to receive these emails, please simply reply with the words NO EMAILS in the subject line and I will remove you from my contact list.

For those of you who chose to help, any and all contact is welcome. Thoughts, tips, research, links, more clues, etc. are all welcome. You are also simply welcome to follow along on my journey and see where it leads.

The form asks for your e-mail, but also a "place" and "time". One of the blogposts had a mystery about a place. But haven't solved it yet and haven't read the rest of the blog posts yet.

What could this be about?

"I recently received a cryptic postcard in my mailbox. Although it contained US postage and had a picture of Mount Vernon on the front of it, it contained no postmark and was written in a hand I do not recognize. It contained only one sentence:

A place by any other name is still a place...yet these two places carry the same name."

Is this a game or an ďARGĒ? We are a Mirror. This is an Aesthetic Experience. This is an Act of Creation. We promote Transformation. We grow in relation to our participants. This is an experiment in evolution, where the All is re-created through individual communion.


What do you think?

Could be a trailhead, of just experimental videos.

"A few years ago I attended my first conference with an alternate reality game implemented as a way of engaging participants as a learning community, and ever since Iíve been hooked. Amanda Visconti and I ran several conference games at THATCamps involving escaped video game characters and invading aliens. Alternate Reality Games (or ARGs) are built on the idea of a shared story invading the physical world, and can include scenarios of invading aliens, impending apocalypse, or mysteries waiting to be solved."

"In the credits on a poster for the Steven Spielberg film A.I. was a mysterious job title: "Sentient Machine Therapist - Jeanine Salla."
Some curious folks did a web search for this woman and found themselves involved in a murder mystery that included messages hidden in movie trailers, bizarre websites, strange phone numbers, and angry emails from fictional people."

"SOMETHING BIG IS COMING UP on September 22. Or September 27, when there will be a lunar eclipse. Or October 8, timed to the Draconid meteor shower. You donít know what it is, but it definitely has to do with a man named Callum Felderi and the mysterious company that employs him."

"An alternate reality game (ARG for short) combines the best elements of viral marketing, role playing games and being an insane person who can't tell fantasy from reality. Basically, ARGs ask the players to pretend they're living in a carefully constructed parallel universe that can include fake websites and phone numbers and even real objects hidden throughout the world ... usually for the sake of promoting a two-hour movie."
