I just saw the same RS.
I've played Ingress for like 20 minutes in the past 2 days. Really can't figure it out. I've collected a bunch of XM and linked the practice portals, but other than that I'm just kind of confused. Aside from the fact that things are sparse in my area...that makes it even more confusing.
