Hello all,

Need I remind you that there are a LOT of people working in this office and that we've had parking regulations for a reason.

Please be professional and use the parking spaces assigned to you. This is the last warning. Next time, culprits will see their vehicle towed.

Thank you.

Security protocolsEdit

FROM: Jack Mosher
TO: Mtl_Picus_All

Hello all,

Just a simple reminder regarding security and emergency protocols. In the event of an emergency the various security doors located around the Picus complex will activate based on current security patterns.

These doors are of course meant to increase security around the complex. Alternative routes and evacuation measures are a crucial part of everyone’s safety. Please make sure to revise section 5.1 to 7.3 of the Employee Manual on a regular basis.

Eliza wardrobe issueEdit

FROM: Simon Seguin
TO: Jennifer Peacock

Hey Jenny,

MDM wants Eliza to wear a blazer from their new fall collection. Do you happen to have her measurements? I’d make a guess but I've never seen her in person. No worries if you don’t know them. I’ll ask Sanjeev.

Status ReportEdit

FROM: Morgan Everett
TO: Mtl_Picus_All

Hello everyone,

Another semester gone, and again we meet a new one, a very important one for Picus as it will see the launch of two new website projects that will let use better compete in the respective fields of search engines and Social Networking.

Our Media and Entertainment division, along with Telecom and Advertising, all show a significant increase in both popularity and revenues. All the while we are expanding, again, our Networking power with yet another Communication Satellite Facility in Northern France.

So, to keep things simple, if a bit cliché I’ll go with:

Keep up the good work. I, for one, am a proud member of your team.

Morgan Everett
CEO, Picus, Montreal Branch

Doug Harlocker’s computerEdit

Harlocker’s computer is located in Office 403 adjacent to office 402. It is unlocked so no login details are required.


FROM: Thomas Minton
TO: Doug Harlocker

Hey Doug,

About that discussion we had last week about our take on Panchaea and the risks involved. I really think we should go forward and have a full cover story about the installation.

This thing is huge, people want to know about it. Now I know you and Rob are afraid of the pro-augmentation angle, but we don't necessarily have to cast it in that light.

I have a friend here in Montreal, Judith Raynault. She's a well-known sociologist. She's the one who wrote the book "10 000 heures", I believe you've read it, right? Anyway, her voice is recognized and respected and she's ready to comment in this issue.

She believes that the fact this whole installation was built by augs and couldn't have been built otherwise is not only a tribute to the power of augmentation, it's also a very strong case for its intense regulation.

The main idea being that Panchaea is a clear example of how the power of augmentation could easily unbalance the present world order if left unchecked. She makes her point with a lot more eloquence than I do of course :P

Anyway... I know the whole thing is a bit touchy with the chief editors and everything, but we have to start showcasing stories about the installation... we ARE getting lower ratings over this.

Think about it.

Cafeteria MassacreEdit

FROM: René Pauzé
TO: Mtl_Picus_All

Okay... whoever started the experiment in Cafeteria Fridge #5.

You know, the one about slowly turning what looks like a roasted beef stew or meal or whatever into a sentient creature that knows only the twin imperatives of "Suppressing All Life" and "Assaulting All Senses".

Could you please buy yourself semi-automatic military carbine and put an end to the abomination you've created?

Seriously, whoever left that stuff in there... clean it up... it's f***ing disgusting!


About PanchaeaEdit

FROM: Doug Harlocker
TO: Robert Hall

Hello Robert,

Tom just sent me an email about the whole Panchaea coverage idea we discussed last week.

I think we just might have found a viable angle. I was like you at first and a bit uncertain... but I have to admit he's got me convinced.

We can probably use this to favor Picus's official position and the extra user clicks won't hurt with the sponsors. Everybody wins.

Check back when you have the time.
