The guys over at TLEC blog found that entering “Nanite” over at Sublymonal.com also leads to a clue which discovered Rachel Blake’s Flickr album when you spell the names backwards in a search (“lehcarekalb”). In the album, in addition to the previous “Nanite” glyph, there are also several pictures of pieced of a ripped letter, which when put together reveal the following letter:
TO: Dr. Hackett
FROM: G. Downs
Engineering Development Center
Date: July 21, 2004
RE: Test Study
Initial research shows release of the psychotropic compound to be
a success. The acid and flavoring agents of the beverage disguise the taste. More tests are necessary to reach optimum viral spread. My superiors are eager for you to join our effort, once you have extricated yourself from your current situationn.
Recall from previous clues that Dr. Hackett was Mel0Drama’s ex-employer at the EDC. And now we know how Apollo ties in–using the flavor to disguise intentional spread of a virus!
Oh, and the definition of psychotropic for those who are curious:
Having an altering effect on perception, emotion, or behavior.
