WE HAVE DETECTED A FICTIONAL HOTSPOT. THERE IS A HIGH PROBABILITY THAT AN ECHO CAN BE FOUND AT THE LOCATION INDICATED HERE: http://londontales.ezblog.twwf.info/?p=119

Well, we know that the invitation is to the Plaza Hotel in New York. Anybody in New York with a smartphone?

Someone suggested Craigslist last time... I think we should actually go for that. Casts a wider net, in a specific city too.

They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

Yeah, someone mentioned it when we needed to go to the Neptune statue or find the notebook.

Any ideas for the section(s) we should put ads in? Wording? kind of bad at this, but it's free and probably the easiest thing to put up for potential returns.

That was me, but it got brought up on the old TV Tropes megathread while I was still lurking, which is why I know.


Can you look for NY based tropers then?

I don't see the harm in explaining the ARG to him and asking for help if you're in the area, Dear.
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.

As much as I hate to say it here, we do need someone in New York as soon as possible. I recommend explaining it as an ARG and asking if he can. (honestly, it's unlikely that most people would agree to this either way)
Please. Don't mind me. I'm just here to watch and help out where I can. Don't expect too much though.

It does have to be Layar. Plus, Mr. A mentioned something about a 'glimpse'. It may be inefficient to send someone else if there is something important we will see, or rather miss seeing.

THOUGH LAYAR DOES HAVE TO BE USED, THE ECHO WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO MISS BY ANYONE USING THE TOOL IN THE CORRECT LOCATION. SURROGATES ARE A PLAUSIBLE OPTION.

FINDING THE ECHO IN ITSELF SENDS DATA TO US FOR USE, SO WE WILL ALSO ASSUREDLY BE INFORMED OF ITS DISCOVERY.

A good bit of us don't. S'alright.
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

Do you know anybody with one who would loan it to you? Or go with you? :D I have a feeling that we need someone to do this sooner rather than later. Otherwise it will be the notebook fiasco all over again.

A good number of my friends have Iphones, I can see if anyone's up to checking it out with me. I won't be able to do so until this weekend, though.

Use this thread for the discussion of getting someone to the echo in New York.

Also, let's keep these topics clean of derailment. It's important we stay focused and not lose these echoes like we did the notebook. Distractions won't be tolerated in this sub forum.

Sounds like there's a slight problem at the Plaza Hotel location.

Uh oh...

That was the first echo to pop up, wasn't it? Maybe it expired?
If everyone would just agree with me, there would never be any problems.
