There are a few things I have noticed mainly due to the #markofthespiderman hashtag on twitter and all those involved. There may be something important with the only highlighted words in the PP notebook. The words are, from left to right, "STATUS" "Recet" "When SWL (could be SWI) closes @ 29-37 volts"


"SW1" typically refers to switches in an electronic diagram/schematic. particularly if there's more than one, they are numbered - eg. sw1, sw2, sw3. hence, the statement "sw1 closes here."

as mentioned on twitter and hashtagged, i assume that sw1 could refer to the button on the webslingers peter parker is developing. the drawings however look to me like sawtooth and square waves. with the addition of volts and milliseconds, it could be a general oscilloscope diagram of electronic pulses (hertz being the inverse of seconds), looking at tolerances/thresholds and operational specifications.

the notebook pages appear to be giving a general impression of researching webslingers, the physics of swinging, mechanics/electronics used to control it, and related topics.

ObFuSc8 took a look at the the unbalanced chemistry equations on twitter. they look to be homework stuff from the chem book. however, (C6H10O5)n to me looks to be like a complex sugar molecule that -to the stretch of the imagination- may refer to generic composition of web material in the webslingers. or not.
[url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/(C6H10O5)n[/url]
refer to his discussion on twitter for more details on the formulas, on which he goes one-by-one to figure out what they are. Smile

as far as i could tell, the equations on the chalkboard in the trailer don't match up to the ones in the notebook to any significance. but a second set of eyes wouldn't hurt.

nothing concrete thus far.

Two rows of bunches of three boxes. Some of the bunches have one of the boxes darkened. Some kind of code, surely! Any ideas?

Pressing the 6 pictures in the order shown on that page originally gave you countdowns under the cities but those have gone now that that stage of the game is complete.

i'm surprised nothing else has happened yet. for the flynn lives campaign, around this close to the movie i remember there being a whole lot to do. (also might of been due to the fact that i was catching up a lot., but still). i'm also kind of surprise we don't have achievement badges.

Having those badges made me feel really cool. I wish there was a Spider-man believers site or something a lot like Flynn Lives where we could get badges, but it'd be way to similar to that campaign.

Official Tagging Video

The www.markofthespider-man.com website has been updated to link to the following video page - http://www.markofthespider-man.com/events/video. It did not work for me in Firefox but did in Safari. There are several source options looking at the source code so I don't know why Firefox didn't work but it shows a compilation from most, if not all, of the tagging events last week.

It looks like they toyed with the idea of placing it on YouTube first as the counters for the MarkoftheSpiderMan channel increased slightly over the last few hours. Maybe it was a coincidence or maybe they are planning something else.

honestly, they really could have picked better music for the video. sounds like an 80s porno.

it's now officially on youtube.


YouTube: Link


it's dated feb 23rd, but was set to private -as some of us saw activity but no videos. they just made public recently.

doesn't sound like 80s porno to me. it's more like a dj mix of early 90s jazz-infused loop beats back in the days of a tribe called quest, but i digress.

Here is a reduced image of the boxes. Reminds me of the black light coding on the Flynn Lives postcards.

Okay. So it's been what, 2, 3 weeks? I dunno. But I have a feeling this could be the week they take it up a notch. Remember, didn't NY get to keep their phones? It'll probably start with them.

if you check markofthespiderman facebook page,

https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=265162663559651

under los angeles, they snuck two motsm listings under our noses:

1. washington blvd, and

2. melrose and martel

the third one listed on the 10 fwy is basically the one on wall & 16th -the meeting spot of the tagging event.

the one on washington blvd is still up. cross street is vinton, right across from sony picture studios in culver city. took a pic and hashtagged it.

the one on melrose and martel - if there was one there to begin with, has been painted over or covered up. both the north west and south east corners of that intersection have painted walls. i didn't see a thing there.

maybe these extra listings could be because the one on la brea on the sonora cafe wall was covered up and they needed one other? or, those two were part of the original tagging but word didn't spread?

other states/places might want to see if there are extra locations that are listed that weren't part of the mark of the spiderman tagging events found on the video.
