Headso: Wait! instead of participating why don't we all put up our own red balloons and really fark the whole thing up?
ErgosumDominati: On the very off-chance I see one of these said balloons...what do I get for stealing it?
HarryPottersStuntDouble: I'm in. :)If I spot one, I'll post the coordinates here.
PenguinTheRed: I'm in, should we just report back to this thread if we see one?
Manfred J. Hattan: ErgosumDominati: On the very off-chance I see one of these said balloons...what do I get for stealing it?It's DARPA. You get a very long, highly detailed tour of Gitmo with as many forehead-washings as you want!
HairBolus: DARPA challenge is really a Espionage/Counter-Espionage Challenge not a Teamwork Challenge.The winner of this challenge will be whoever can infiltrate enough large naive teams and use them all to gather the most information.If Drew publicly posts the full latitudes and longitudes of found balloons, then Fark will lose. The only reasonable thing to openly post is something like "balloon found in N Ca."To do this properly one has to get into the whole "need to know" and "trusted agent" game.
albo: 10 balloons, let's say 2 million out of the US's 3.5 million square miles fit the requirements, that's one balloon every 200,000 square miles. like putting one ballon in thailand.
sonofslacker: dugitman: I dont totally get it but Im in.I like being part of the cool crowd. this is a cool crowd activity, right?This is a nerd crowd activity.
Lesbian-Jesus: Me thinks darpa want's to know how quickly word of highly visible government will spread and via which networks...but it sounds like a fun challenge anyway :)
edg_mule: If I happen to See anything in the DC area i'll post it.It occurs to me they'll probably put them up around areas where they already have people stationed.
Walker: But DARPA is evil.
sidmind: HeadsoWait! instead of participating why don't we all put up our own red balloons and really fark the whole thing up?Now that is not a bad idea, if only members of Fark know about it, then it would screw other social networking sites.it would actually be a great addition to the experiment.
