Wait, do we have to have badges to attend?


I was wondering as well if badges are necessary for the conference. Anyone around the Los Angeles area receive his/her badge yet?


I received my badge the first day they started showing up, I live about 45 minutes from Los Angeles.

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I emailed the press agent associated with the press release "Alan" mentioned in his IGN interview here:

and got this reply:

Thank you for your interest in interviewing Alan Bradley at the San Francisco Encom Press Announcement. Due to overwhelming response, we will not be able to accommodate all requests, but will review the details below and get back to you if appropriate.

We appreciate your patience and, again, thank you for your interest.

What do they mean by "outlet"? Like job position? Location? Anyone know?

Well, after reading the recent murmurs on the FlynnLives Forum, tipping us off that they plan to 'a protest' at the conference, here's a cut n paste of the topic from the Forum:

I'm sure it's just a ploy to boost their stock.

Re: Encom Press Conference - Are You There?

Encom could only have two possible types of news to announce: 1) that they intend to flood the market with some new product that everyone just MUST buy, or 2) that they deny all blame for some faulty software they already released. Either way, I won't trust a thing they have to say.

They want everyone to ponder what big plans they have so they can drive up interest in their products. Let's remember what Encom is all about: the almighty dollar.

Which brings us to the million-dollar question: are y'all going to attend their press conference? We've got the badges we need to gain entry.

Whatever you wear, just make sure you're comfortable. We're all marching over to the Encom event.

Re: Encom Press Conference - Are You There?

It's the perfect moment for us to not so subtly refocus attention on the search for Kevin Flynn. They're making some big presentation on April 2nd... And we're gonna cut in on the action.

Let's really make them really sit up and take notice. They'll have plenty of press on hand - let's use it!

We should pull a sixties maneuver - stage a sit in.

Re: Encom Press Conference - Are You There?

More of an awareness campaign. Encom acts like they never heard the name Kevin Flynn, but they still cash their checks and get fat off of his innovations. We're going to make them pay attention to him... and to us.


So those attending will DEFINITELY need their badges to get in, but I was pondering another scenario concerning the badges:

- Maybe our badges will identify ourselves to the FlynnLives Protest that we are working for them when the verbal bantor fight begins between them and the ENCOM officials, during the melee someone from FlynnLives/ENCOM will hand out software to start the next viral mission and they will be ordered to evacuate immediately.

Thanks Jamiro for clearing that up.

Sucks, I haven't received my badge yet, been a few weeks too *grr*. Definitely going to be around SF anyways because of WonderCon!

Be cool to just hang around for the Encom conference and the protest and see if anyone else from here in the forums will attend. Meetup, anyone?!

Definitely interested in meeting up with people... I'll most likely be taking public transportation though (live about half an hour away from SF), and I don't think I can exactly let anyone crash at my house as I don't really have the authority to do that.

But yeah, going in with other UFers would be nice.

I think that a lot of the out of town FL fans are having the same problems. It's very pricey to fly up to SF and rent a hotel for the weekend. Not to mention Easter weekend. Today's economy is a harsh playground for we ARG fans.

Maybe some downloadable swag will become available to we who were unable to attend.

I think you might be able to... just pose as a reporter or something.

one final question:
do you think we should adhere to the Encom dress code for this event?

if you're going, i'd say follow the guidelines. if you're infiltrating the company you'd want to blend in until the time was right to make your move. more immersive in the ARG too i think.

hey people... when we do get to the Plaza, where should we meet up at the plaza? If they don't explicitly say where. I mean it's not exactly an exact location.

Why don't you just meet up in front of the Vaillancourt Fountain?
