Found on day 11 after following a QR code in the video The Niantic Investigation 1 - Comiccon.
we can see what looks like a body shape ,most likely the statue of Escher in Zurich.
This image seems to be part of something larger as hinted by the thumbnail for the video Roland Jarvis.
There are some dots to the left of the word Jarvis.
Translated it turns into gmvnmvgstromv.
Reversing the previous message you get vmortsgvmnvmg
Using a letter replacement with this key :
G=T M=N N=M O=L R=I S=H T=G V=E
We get the word enlightenment already mentioned in Tycho's poster together with a similar image. This is actually a passcode.
Found on day 17 after following a QR code in the video The Niantic Investigation 2 - Comiccon. we can see the niantic boat and what looks like the Transamerica Pyramid in San Franscico (plus note the title trans).
This image is different from the original monument and the one seen in Tycho's poster
Reverse the numbers and split them into pairs, as hinted to by the Thought for Today 11/26.
88 16 89 14 89 26 24 33 74
Add all pairs of adjacent numbers together and convert to ASCII to produce the passcode higgs29k.
Found in a link in the Thought of the Day: Day 10 http://www.nianticproject.com/?id=00tod10 by clicking the A in PAC at the bottom
It contains the following message

Decoded the message says: “I WORK IN THE DARK AND ACQUIRE THE RESOURCES I NEED, AT WILL. YOUR JOB IS TO GET IMPEDIMENTS OUT OF MY WAY, NOT BECOME ONE. AS YOU INDICATED THAT THERE WAS NO FIXED BUDGET ON THE ADA CONSTRUCTION, I DO NOT BELIEVE THE CONTRACTS I HAVE PUT IN PLACE SHOULD POSE A PROBLEM FOR YOU OR THE NIA.”
Found in a link in the Tuning ADA Chatlog

and the author field contains:
Bellaso was the inventor of a simple cipher known as the Vigenère cipher. When the string is reversed and run through the Vigenère cipher with the key “ADA”, we get a URL: http://goo.gl/jHtfP
We can do a look up and see it was only created on the 1st of November (http://goo.gl/#analytics/goo.gl/jHtfP/all_time)
This URL links to:
Within the same page can also be found:
“In modern psychology, inspiration is not frequently studied, but it is generally seen as an entirely internal process. In each view, however, whether empiricist or mystical, inspiration is, by its nature, beyond control.”
The audio files are mirrored and documented on the audio page.
This as usual is another goo.gl link → http://goo.gl/zvh8z.
By combining all the hidden letters, you find the passcode 4rh6conflicts3z4x.
After we can convert 6d 61 74 74 65 72 34 34 78 to ASCII and we get matter44x (passcode).

This morning, Nianticproject.com suffered from a 3 hour long DDOS attack originating from what I beleive to be multiple governmental networks.
My guess is that this was a hasty attempt by the NIA to plug the leaks. A panicked tactic to do anything and everything possible to silence us.
BUT WHY NOW? WHAT DID WE UNCOVER?
Well, listed up NIA. You managed to knock me down for a few hours, but I'm back. And one thing's for certain. I have not stopped nor will I be stopped. I wil continue to post what I discover every day.
And I am not alone.
Truth seekers: If the site ever gets knoked down again, reconnect with each other and continue to expose the truth. This fight has multiple fronts.

THEY WILL NOT SILENCE US. THIS IS NOT OVER. THIS IS THE BEGINNING.

Encoded text visible on the ingress homepage under the heading 'Labor Omnia Vincit'. Coded through glyph substitution - fairly simple but difficult to read, rough translation below:
'What follows is the secret hidden message from glass and martyr. We don't have anything profound to report. We hope you have enjoyed decoding this secret hidden message. Well perhaps not hidden'
As I say quite a rough decode and it doesn't appear to lead to anything although I haven't heard 'Glass' or 'Martyr' mentioned before.
