A website (eon8.com) which was a mysterious site with
a count-down timer on it, along with
other unusuall codes
and links. This website spawned many theories for its actuall purpose. Such as, that it was a global computer virus, linked
to terrorism, or even a countdown to the end of the world. In the end, when the counter
struck zero the website refreshed and revealed
that eon8 was merely a (sucessful) social experiment conducted by a 23 year old computer programmer
named Mike, who lives in Florida (according to his final message).
