I disagree. I am not sure how much I can say publicly, but I might have information about the people behind he pi.mobi
puzzle. I don't expect you to believe me what I can't prove, but anyway, I have heard from credible sources that certain people received instructions.
One of those instruction was to claim that a picture that was posted on 4chan had a PGP signature. That picture "quickly 404'd", werent saved by "anybody" and were never discussed again. One of my sources however did supply me with a copy of of the image, it later turned up in the facebook group a few hours before it would happen. That picture did not carry an outguess message, and it could not, it was a PGP file. Outguess doesn't support those.
So as it looks. I have credible reports that the people behind pi-mobi instructed people to lie about something that cannot be true. You don't need to believe this story and I am not at liberty to share the evidence I've seen, however, I believe it becomes more credible if you consider another thought.
Why would anyone link to that random youtube video? How would you find that particular video at that specific point in time among the thousands of other videos uploaded in that time frame? To me it sounds like it was injected into places like the facebook group from pi.mobi
supporters (or the creators themelves maybe) in advance. It is roughly known around what time cicada usually posts a message every year, and its not hard to retroactively modify a description and abusing hindsight-bias. What I'm saying is, its not clear to me how *anyone* could, in advance, single out 314 when at the time nobody knew it would be relevant, as it was posted to facebook hours before the cicada tweet. This situation is trivial to fabricate.
