Alright, Eon8 was awesome. For the last week or so, it's just been a big timer and a lot of really cryptic stuff. The link flooded virally, everyone told their friends. There was an investigative ytmnd which may well have been made by the same people who started the site. Most were sure it'd be a marketing ploy or whatever, some actually thought it was dangerous (there was a map of "deployment points" with red dots all over the world) and most other just thought it might be cool. So zillions flooded the site at midnight EDT today (July 1) to see what would happen...and after the timer ran out, now the page displays:
"As of July 1st, 2006, the E8 Project has completed. The purpose of this project was to determine the reactions of the internet public to lack of information."
Now that's just cool.
