Hey guys, I brought this here because I expect the response to be more mature and intelligent than in the Pit, although I don't know how welcome "conspiracies" are here.

Well anyways, the sites www.eon8.com and as www.eon5.com have been brought to my attention. Now, I was intrigued by Eon8 so I did a quick google and found a blog that has been following it, as well as fostering comments and theories as to what this site is. (http://eon8whatthehellisit.blogspot.com/) and (http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=30285669&postID=115162639709051108 for comments/discussion)

Now, what can you guys dig up? Viral marketing? One big hoax? National Joke Day? What do you guys think?

It pretty much has no relevance at all to anything ever. So it's not important.

As of July 1, 2006, the internet has been pwned.

I've never heard of it. The sites aren't working.

Eon5 just looks like the kind of lift shaft you see in the half life games.

Anway, what was the eon8 site? Just some weird numbers and a countdown timer?

A hoax about nothing. I believe it had a countdown timer to july 1st 2006, some passworded files and just alot of talking about nothin in particular. It got linked to terrorism and the likes.

I think it's quite an interesting idea. I never heard about it before, but I wish I had.

I used to really be into Majestic12 conspiracy theories and sites, and there are quite a few of those, and I found some official looking site once (called MJ12, the webaddress was very long, can't remember it) and started believing things too much, until someone pointed out to me that any secret organisation wanting to take over the world will NOT advertise the fact on the intrawubblez. I was 11.

I just started reading The Man Who Was Thursday, which is one of the books that keep getting quoted on that game. Which reminds me, I gotta get it back off my brother.

All Eon8 was was a timer. That's it. A 6 month countdown untill July 1st. It was an experiment to see what the public did with a lack of knowledge of what would happen. People started to assume Eon8 was linked with terrorism, maybe the end of the world, a release of some major idea, etc.

Just an experimentation some guy did.
