My final report

March 25th, 2009

This all started with the promise of a story.
When Markus phoned me from Peru, he wanted to me to meet him at Heathrow. He had a story to tell me. Then he was murdered.
It’s taken us two months to discover what that story was - two months of you guys working so incredibly hard to [...]

The message

March 25th, 2009

At home working on my next video blog when the phone goes.
Not really in the mood to talk, I let it ring out.
The person on the other end leaves a message.
By the time I get to the phone, the line is dead.

Out of our hands

March 22nd, 2009

Hi everyone
After an exhausting 24hrs we’ve gotten it together enough to post on what’s happened:

Rachel’s got a post up about what happened, and you can look through the transcript of the online stuff. You did brilliantly, thank you - I’d go as far as saying you all saved my life.

The team

March 20th, 2009

I’m probably going to take some flack for this one, but let me be clear: taking part in this is a matter of personal choice. I can’t guarantee anything.
Having said that, here’s our very own A-Team:
Mike Rush
Kim Chantler
Kirsty Fish
Claire Tillyer
Zoe Fell
Edit: we’re hopefully taking along two extra team members, too:

More ideas for Sunday

March 20th, 2009

With Sunday’s lab heist ever closer - and my innards in ever greater turmoil - a further summary of suggestions for how to pull it all off (lab heist, not innards):
Tilly reckons distraction is the way to go, perhaps coupled with a ’scientist delivering something to lab’ cover story.
If you take a cool box [...]

How to get in?

March 16th, 2009

Any thoughts on how to pull this off?
William’s suggestion:
The best bet would be to host a rally outside their offices, distracting them long enough for someone to slip in (not that I condone that in any shape or form)
Seems like a good one - seeing as the other option of applying for a job seems [...]

Some insider help - and help from YOU?

March 12th, 2009

Given that we know MAL - Prometha’s new product, and set to make them a lot of money - is derived from Murutaibo DNA, how do we get proof without the evidence being destroyed?

I’ve spoken to Alison Streatwell from [...]

The Milla Flores

March 12th, 2009

You guys have done some amazing work figuring out Jim Malham’s passwords and stuff for the Blackmoor site - thank you. But I’m wondering about this:
When I spoke to her, Emma Bracewell told me that her last known address for her cousin was at the Millaflores Hotel in Lima. I presume he was there before [...]

The tie between Malham and Prometha

March 12th, 2009

For me this is a crucial development. We have a paper trail that establishes a link between Malham and Prometha. Thanks to Kim C, Claire, Zoe, Kirsty and Thomas K for figuring it out.
Just last week I was telling Sam Rocz that she was being paranoid about Woodburn… am now thinking I might have been [...]
