This blog collects all of my research on Dr. Devra Bogdanovich as well as becoming a way to tell her story. You can check the What is this page for an overview of the project, or browse through the Bio and Career pages to learn about Dr. Bogdanovich's work and life. The main part of the blog will serve as a journal of my journey to document my research and to pay homage to a distinguished scientist.

A Kind of Portal Virus
A portion of the July 10th Ingress Report featured an audio clip of a partial conversation between Dr. Ezekiel Calvin and Dr. Devra Bogdanovich.
Devra: Calvin, I can't wait for the vaccine to be ready. We have to act now. There is something we discovered during research. (some digital beeps are heard) Keep watching the portal. Did you see that? (more digital beeps) It burned out. And soon they all will. It's a kind of portal virus. Deployment starts today. I hope you are ready.
On July 11th, Dr. Martin Schubert released a post regarding an observed increased decay rate in portals.
from the post: I'm sure by now most of you have seen the revelations on the “Ingress Report” about the work by Dr. and the CDC on a so-called Portal Virus.
I began investigating as soon as I heard. Initial results show increased Portal Decay. At this point I am unable to say exactly how much, but the increase seems greater than 200%. Fully charged Portals will decay in 72 hours
On July 11th, there was a post from IQTech Research.
from the post: In response to the recent unexpected increase in the Portal decay rate, has doubled the production and deployment of its exclusive Power Cube XM Object. This should enable Agents to more effectively recharge select Portals.
We condemn the irresponsible actions undertaken by Dr. which have led to the current crisis. We remain confident that countermeasures can and will be developed before our XM reserves are threatened.
ON July 12th Stein Lightman posted about a change in the amount of XM constructs put out by Glyph Hacking.
from the post: Shortly after the Portals began to Decay more rapidly due to 's 'Portal Virus,' the so-called 'Shaper Glyph Hack' mechanism built into the scanner (accessible by long-clicking the HACK button) became significantly more effective at boosting Portal Hacks than it had been previously.
Where is this all leading? Is this a system that is connected and we are seeing how changes in one component ripple through to other parts of the system? Is this manipulation by certain people, corporations, entities?
