Anybody else catch the QR code that flashed by when he was journaling on the Season Premier of Mr. Robot Season 2? If you did it'll take you to the following website: http://www.conficturaindustries.com/
I know it looks like some shit ass GeoCities site right?! Well… Pop open your dev tools and poke around and you'll run across some pretty explicit "hints" that it's not just some long forgotten web property.

AdobeTracking.showSite = 'Mr. Robot';
AdobeTracking.showSiteFeature = 'Mr. Robot : S2 Easter Egg Sites';

Also… if you look up the latin root for confictura you'll get the following: falsehood, Fancy, fantasy, FICTION, forgery, imagination, invention, lie, phantasy.
