The kryptos.info network is still in its infancy. Over the course of the summer, new Kryptos Sculpture animations will become available at Kryptos Revisited, and already a significant amount of work has been accomplished. Last month Gary Phillips released the Kryptos Sculpture font, and already it has been downloaded several hundred times. The network is growing through links from other web sites and blogs, and steady traffic is at an all-time high.
The author of Beyond K4 — a new blog exploring variations on classical cryptography as it relates to Sanborn’s CIA sculpture — is hosting various contests with prizes. If, for no other reason than to take a break from your daily routine, you may want to stop by that blog and drop a line. Kryptosfan is pursuing fresh avenues, and the comprehensive journal of experiments is an interesting read. The blog’s author welcomes the public to submit entries to various competitions, ranging from ideas like what do you think k4 says? to the much more difficult polyglot challenge, which involves designing software to aid in solving multilingual cryptograms. There are some cash prizes, and you don’t have to be an expert in all of these challenges — you just need to follow the guidelines. Who knows! You could make a name for yourself!
Today the kryptos.info network added new search capabilities to the web sites. Now you can perform a Google search from within the web site to discover information across the network, discussion forums across the web, and recommended articles in preferred sites. Now it’s easier than ever to search multiple blogs at once that have been hand-selected to guarantee fresh, interesting conversation related to Kryptos and classical cryptography.
Another feature at Kryptos Revisited is the new linking schema. Specific words are automatically highlighted across all the network pages to make it very easy to find additional information. For example, palimpsest will be automatically highlighted wherever it appears, linking directly to additional information about its definition and appearances in other parts of the network. You can even find current discussion forums related to the word links you follow. As more pages are added to the web sites over the summer, the number of highlighted terms will increase, making kryptosRevisited.com the most comprehensive resource available for your Kryptos Sculpture pursuits. New sections highlighting some of the people involved in Kryptos provide a personal touch to the theme. You’ll explore many sites, blogs, and articles beyond Kryptos Revisited, because the network is a hub — more than a destination.
