IMPORTANT: Comet story edit[edit | edit source]

FROM: Shaun Gibbons
TO: Adrien Kellman

AK,

Just reminding you about my note on that comet story you're uploading today. Please make sure to remove the frame where you can see the VersaLife Space station in that sky shot. The big boys will blast us if we leave that in, guaranteed.

On a des chaises faites exprès pour les mini-meetings. SVP me ramener la mienne et ne plus la reprendre.

À chaque fois les settings sont déréglés et je dois passer 30 minutes à tout resetter comme du monde!

Merci

We have rules for a reason[edit | edit source]

FROM: David Bernstein
TO: JF Kenney

Listen JF,

We have these reviews for a reason. "Liberty of the press" or "freedom of expression" have nothing to do with this. You are a very good columnist. Funny, witty, a bit disturbing but that's part of your style. This is not a commission to ""sanction your right to speak your mind" for God's sake. It's an editing review. It's standard procedure and you know it.

Now... one of Picus' main responsibilities comes from the notion that everything we do can have effects on the mind and emotions of the public. With this comes power but with this power comes responsibility. Now, it's all very cliché I know, but it's still true. You can't go around spurting insanities just for the sake of it. You can call it an "agenda" if you want to, but I prefer to think of it as a responsible approach to entertainment journalism.

Anyway, we're still up for a session of Universe of Shadows on Saturday?

Dave

Hello all,

Just a simple reminder to always go through the lexicon of approved terms and vocabulary (check the wiki: hppt://MtlWiki/Web/Design/Approval/Lexicon.?origurl=%2Ftwiki%3Fbin%5Fview%2FHG3) before you submit anything on the official servers or post anything on the forums.

Thank you.

Forum comment to delete[edit | edit source]

FROM: Jesse Macdougal
TO: Philip Kane

Hey Phil,

Can you delete that comment about the cyber-Olympic chick that refers to her as an "augged up floozy." Not cool, man.

Proper phrasing[edit | edit source]

FROM: Oren Baum
TO: Andrew Cavallero

Just wanted to give you a small tip. In your script for the piece about Taggart you referred to him as "anti-augmentation activist Bill Taggart." Try to avoid using that term. Pro-Human has less of a negative connotation.

Thanks,

Nice one[edit | edit source]

FROM: Rob Francis
TO: Andrew Cavallero

Hey Andrew,

Great job on the riot text. Love the part about Sarif being like Nero playing his electric fiddle as Detroit burned. Good shit.

Wanna hit up a ball game tonight? Strasbourg is pitching so Spos got this one. You in?

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The email Ma Chaise (My chair) can be roughly translated to the following:
To whoever took my chair,
The chairs are made expressly for the mini-meetings. Please bring me back my chair and do not take it again.
Each time the settings are disordered and I have to spend 30 minutes reseting it comme du monde [as it should be]!
Thank you
Lionel


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The game Modernization IX is a clear reference to the turn-based strategy game series Civilization.
  • The game Universe of Shadows mentioned in an email on JF Kenney's computer is likely a reference to the World of Darkness tabletop games.
  • The "Strasbourg" in Rob Francis' e-mail is presumably Stephen Strasburg, who would be pitching for the Montreal Expos.  In the real world, the Expos moved to Washington, D. C., to become the Nationals in 2005.
