Interesting developments with the Niantic Project Investigation. Ben Jackland is alive! He posted a comment on a post from PAC. It seems the NIA cannot control people as well as they think. In light of this news, I have updated Ben Jackland record within the POI Database as being active.
Also, today I added new sources to the Niantic Project Investigation Log. Due to Ben Jackland's return, I have added his G+ profile as a source. I have also added Verum Inveniri's Page and Truths33k3r's Reddit. Use the Investigation Log wisely.
