LOST - the ARG...

(If you're wondering what an ARG or "Alternative Reality Game" is, please check out http://www.unfiction.org)

Looks like the TV show LOST is starting up an ARG. The trailhead is the site http://thehansofoundation.org (referred to glancingly in the episode Orientation shown last week).

Entering https:// instead of http:// gives you the text "bigspaceship1". Typing this in takes you to ... well... kind of appropriately what appears to be a numbers site. (http://bigspaceship1.com if you need the link).

This site has been getting weirder and weirder. Latest pic is a mouse sitting on a piece of cheese with a numbers-site radio recording from way back being played behind it.

If you take that pic, and run it through Photoshop (Equalize, then clip the red channel), you get the message "attention all rodents meet at 22:00 local time", along with this map:

Looks like the game is afoot :)
