The Kryptos Project

Gary Phillips, the author of the “Kryptos Revisited” web site monitors various Kryptos-Sculpture-related web sites, blogs, and news sources to give you the best in originality and usefulness.  One web site that has stood as a beacon of information in the vast sea of endless Kryptos references is “The Kryptos Project” by Jew-Lee Lann.

Please visit her web site for original Kryptos sources at www.theKryptosProject.com.

This professional source is now among the other “Kryptos Revisited” recommended sites:

Material in Final Review

The kryptos.info research group will be releasing new information on a regular basis through Kryptos Revisited and related external web sites.  The group consists of Kryptos professionals and experienced enthusiasts who have volunteered their time and resources to compiling information related to Jim Sanborn’s CIA Sculpture, Kryptos.  New theories and possible insights to the sculpture will be reported along with interactive tools for public use.

Although the group is closed to invitation, you may direction questions to fb@kryp-tos.in-fo (remove dashes).

Certain to be Worth Your Time

The kryptos.info network is comprised of facts, promising conjecture, and inspirational entertainment as it relates to Jim Sanborn’s CIA Sculpture, Kryptos.  Although kryptos.info, kryptosrevisited.com, and realmoftwelve.net are not a part of a formal partnership with other contributing web sites and discussion forums, the concept of the kryptos.info network includes the latest favorable ideas from outside sources.  Here are a few new ones:

ninetysevenletters.wordpress.com (blog)

kryptoswiki.com (now live!)

apexofkryptos.wordpress.com (blog)

The “APEX” of Kryptos (theory/orientation to logical matrix manipulation)

New Search and Link Feature

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.

kryptosRevisited.com Introduction

Welcome to the kryptos.info network!  (click here to see the web site connected to this blog)

Kryptos Revisited” is a web site that explores Kryptos, a sculpture by James Sanborn located at CIA HQ in Langley, VA.  The Kryptos Sculpture contains several encrypted messages, and much of the focus has been on three of four passages encoded on its prominent copper scroll.  The quest has been to unlock the final passages of the encoding and to unveil the remaining mysteries yet shadowed in the veil of uncertainty.

I personally welcome you to this group and ask that you introduce yourself to the growing number of kryptos.info participants.  Your name, a brief background, and general purpose for your visit will suffice.  Individuals and groups are welcome to participate in the discussions that span this web site, and we all ask that any information used herein leading to a breakthrough or solution be credited back to this web site and this group.  This implies that any press release will credit kryptos.info or kryptosRevisited.com as a resource instrumental to any new information.  By all means take personal credit, and acknowledge the rest of us, as we in turn will do so for you.

Without further adieu, here’s to a successful and worthy journey as we explore Kryptos.

looking forward to meeting you,

gary
