LOST ARG: Response from Octagon

Hi everyone, I want to break a little the style of the blog to share a little bit of one of my passions... LOST. Some months ago I posted about the launching of a new Lost ARG (Alternate Reality Game) that will introduces us to the upcoming season next September.

If you visited
Octagon Site by that time you would found that they were 'recruiting' people for the company.

Well I received an e-mail today, that basically is to inform about a meeting for the recruitment drive that will be at Comic-Con in San Diego, California. Why Comic-Con, well J.J. Abrams is a well-known assistant to that event, especially for all the projects he has been doing (Cloverfield, Fringe, new Star Trek movie, and of course LOST). Is precisely in the Comic-Con where the ARG will be officially launched, I was suposedly invited with this e-mail, but unfortunately I can't assist, so enjoy the fun if you are one of the lucky ones that will assist the event... Don't forget to go to Booth 3529!!!
Below is the content of the e-mail;

Octagon Global Recruiting, on behalf of the Dharma Initiative, is pleased to announce that Dharma's Head of Recruiting, Mr. Hans Van Eeghen, has confirmed his availability for the launch of our latest recruiting drive at Comic-Con 2008.
"My colleagues at Octagon Global Recruiting assure me that Comic-con hosts some of the brightest minds in the country," said Mr. Van Eeghen. "As Head of Recruiting it is my intention to personally assess the very best of this talent in the hope that they may join us."
The Dharma Initiative will be conducting eligibility assessments at Booth 3529 at Comic-Con, San Diego between July 24th - 27th.
If you are attending Comic-Con and would like to submit your name for a randomly selected drawing to secure one of ten (10) pre-release appointments with one of our recruiting officers, please click here.
The volunteer eligibility assessment will be available online from July 28th for a limited time at www.dharmawantsyou.com
The Dharma Initiative hopes you will spread the word. Invite your friends to join the team at www.octagonglobalrecruiting.com

And of you know J.J. Abrams, and if you participate in others Lost ARG, sure you'll know that's not all. Hidden in the e-mail code is this:

…If you’re reading this, wanna hear something cool? I’ve got intel about his little “recruitment drive.” They’re doing some kind’ve personality/IQ testing or something down in SD for ComicCon. Buddy of mine works down there and has the approvals for their “booth,” he says once you go in no one knows what happens inside and you need an appointment to get in. He also said to make sure you’ve got your Bluetooth on and visible – he’s rigged up a little something.

The whole thing sounds like elitist B.S., doesn’t it? Well, I’m getting in that booth and taking the test. As many times as I have to before I “pass” (whatever that means?) And then… If I can? I’m gonna tape it so EVERYONE can see what these idiots are up to. Should be fun, right? See ya in SD. RuckusGuy OUT.

So, you heard RuckusGuy, if you attend Comic-Com, pass to the Booth and be sure to turn on your bluetooth device, sure you will receive some message regarding Octagon or Dharma.

I can't brag and say I found that (I wish), this is thanks to the guy in this blog: http://www.lostargs.com/ that's your reference for everything about Lost ARG's
