With the Resistance in the lead, much depends on the 26 Link Operations, the Shard Operation in Fukuoka and the Portal Capture Operations around the globe this coming weekend.
The response by Agents around the world to help develop a counterpattern to the Dark XM threat has been admirable. The stories, emerging even now via the hashtag #DarkXMCure on Google+ have been inspiring.
To all who are preparing for their epic work ahead this weekend: I wish you good luck.
