So, I need to hack portals, and eventually I'll wind up with a key at some point, or does the portal's owner have the key?

Many questions answered here.

http://support.google.com/ingress/

There can be multiple copies of the same key, I recently had 7 keys to the same portal in a town nearby. You hack portals to obtain items you need. Lower levels, 1 or 2 mostly, should use the comm to coordinate with higher level players. Many places have areas set aside by the factions for "farming" items by lower level players and allowing them to create links and fields for experience.

The intel map can be key to scouting your area and planning your routes through it. It gives you the latest info for your area and also allows you to connect to the comm from your home computer.

Anybody still playing? I made level 8 just before I got called back to work and with the 6 day schedule and 9 hour days, I'm not getting a lot of play time.

I "play" if by "play" you mean don't go anywhere or level up or anything. After I move back to Baltimore I expect the game to pick up for me.

There is a portal down the street from me, but it's not the old naval academy. No. It's a teeny tiny burger joint.

Submit portals for public art, landmarks and churches, churches seem to be real big for portals lately.

I just started playing now. It just so happens that I live in a hotbed of portals. I am right next to the city hall, post office, fire dept, police dept, and library.  :thumbup:
