Back in Season 1 or 2, I happened to catch a fake commercial for the Hanso Foundation.  I followed it, and I'm sure many of you have done the same.  If not, the website uncovered many mysteries about the foundation and the weird electromagnetism and whatnot on the island. 

During tonight's season finale, I caught another commercial that was very similar to the one for the Hanso Foundation.  The ad said it was "sponsored by ABC" and it gave the web address.  I neglected to write it down, therefore I forgot the address.  It had something to do with "global" and maybe networking... like: ___global___.com or org.

BTW, if you want to check the Hanso website, there's not much left to it.  The address is www.thehansofoundation.org.

Someone, PLEASE tell me you saw the commercial as well??? and that you remember the web address?

I don't know well how they do it, but doesn't seem to me that they would use "godaddy" to register.

If you read the Terms & Conditions it says it's a part of the Walt Disney Internet Group.  I read the agreement and it's awfully complicated for me.  I was going to sign up, but I don't understand the terms.

Who knows.  I figured since it was for "un paid positions", they were just letting us know there will be plenty of LOST there.  It would be cool if they were giving away tickets and such!

The spot before the final act of S4's finale is a commercial for the Dharma Initiative.

Voiceover
Octogan Global Rectuiting will be in San Diego California July 24th through the 27th.  We're seeking volunteers to assist in a range of unpaid positions.  Explore the possibilities with Octagon Global Recruiting.  For more information go to Octagon Global Recruiting dot com.

Text
On behalf of the Dharma Initiative, Octagon Global Recruiting is currently seeking volunteers to contribute to an important new research project.

The Dharma Initiative is a multidisciplinary research collective dedicated to improving the human condition through innovative scientific research.

Our directors are recognized leaders in their fields, with distinguished research histories in a wide range of social and scientific disclipines.

A new research project is about to commence which will play a vital role in futhering the Dharma Initiative's objectives.

Octagon Global Recruiting, on behalf of the Dharma Initiative, requires research volunteers to assist in a range of unpaid positions.

Our national recruiting drive will commence in San Diego, California July 24-27, 2008.


The Job Title Scroll
Meteorologists, Psychologists, Parapsychologists, Zoologists, Physicists, Mathematicians, Botanical Researchers, Engineers, Builders, Drivers, Health Care Workers, Communications Specialists, Neuroscientists, Janitors, Engineers, Biologists, Astrophysicists, Ex-military, Electricians, Vets, IVF Consultants (In Vitro Fertilization), Teachers, Architects, Ichthyologists (study of fish), Transport Mechanics, Immunologists, Nurses, Illustrators, Auditors, Minibus Drivers, Recycling Coordinators, Aeronautical Engineers, Horticulturalists, Dentists.

What is Missing
All previously known Dharma communications ended with "Namaste" - this one does not.  Maybe because Octagon Global Recruiting is working on behalf of Dharma?

Between the Lines
The "national recruiting drive" will "commence" in San Diego, suggesting other locations beyond San Diego.

The dates mentioned are those for Comic-Con in San Diego (www.comic-con.org).

"Imagine the Possibilities" is a Hanso Foundation tag line.

In the job title scroll, "engineers" appear twice.
