Interesting Easter Eggs
Surfing YouTube falls under investigative reporting right? In researching a few articles this morning, I discovered an interesting hidden gem from director Rubidium Wu. The YouTube webseries, The Silent City has been playing for a month or so and has delivered three spectacular episodes.
In watching the series again, I noticed at the end of episode one, that there was a brief flash of an image. A hidden clue? If so, what is it a clue to? We’ll wait to find out more as the series progresses, but it looks like one viewer has made some progress with the potential riddle. “7 dot 9… still sorting out the password.” gregorygeiger 1 month ago
Easter Eggs have a long tradition with programmers and directors. Some of the notable ones that come to mind are Google’s Do a Barrel Roll, the hidden tracks on Nirvana and NIN CDs, the Disney DVD cover art that was pulled from the shelves and then also the famous Microsoft Flight Simulator hidden away in Excel.
