I'm in. I was hoping that something would pop up related to JJ's new show.

Perhaps JJ has a sense of humor!

I saw that QR code as well, and watching in HD on a 50" tv - it still looked too blurry to scan, and the camera was moving which didn't help.
I was watching for numbers and codes too, but nothing really stood out, unless hidden meaning will be revealed in the future.

The show's intrigued me, but I do hope the campaign does continue with its own arc, tied in to the show, rather than just extensions paralleling the show's content...

Article coming shortly at Wikibruce Smile

The lockbox as shown in the official twitter feed looks like the one sent out last week for a viral campaign.

The coordinates are in the middle of Alcatraz but are very specific. Maybe a particular cell or room in there?

coordinates approximately point to the last cell on Michigan Avenue
If you look at this diagram, it's the cell used for "Typical Cell Layout"
Google Map for reference

. 9:14 AM or PM? ... gotta assume AM i guess
. what timezone? ... gotta assume PST i guess

thoughts?

OMG, JJ Abrams is such a genius! I love his little easter eggs. I dvr'd the show last night and just started watching the second hour, titled "Jacob Cobb". One of the easter eggs I just spotted...
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Cobb Manufacturing makes/made a 50 Caliber sniper rifle.

Interesting. The twitpic resembles the postcard included in that promo pack (link given above) -- at least the text from Susie is the same, but it is handwritten on the back of a different postcard. (Honestly, I think there is no clue here; they are probably just trying to redistribute the promo materials to people who didn't catch the initial blog-o-blast, including myself.) And Susie is describing that scene from the pilot episode which aired last night, so this is even less of a clue for an ARG, to me.

I saw the QR code as well, but wasn't able to scan it as when I pause my Tivo, it covers up the QR code. I tried Hulu, but the Hulu copy is too blury (480p only....maybe you have to subscribe to get HD links)



best i could do

Your shot of the QR code is better than the one I got. I couldn't get a reading off of either.

These aren't ARG related (if there is an ARG) but for anyone who's interested here are a couple Kelvin sightings from the first two Alcatraz episodes.

Pilot.

Don't know if this is directly related to Legends of Alcatraz but the character Dr. Diego "Doc" Soto (Jorge Garcia) has an official twitter and tumblr.
