Doctor Geek

From the Desk of Doctor Geek

Dr. Scott Viguié (a.k.a. Doctor Geek) holds two doctorate degrees and is an archaeologist, attorney, actor and author. Before his wife will permit him to go back to graduate school, yet again, he will have to promise to move on to something that starts with a "B". As luck would have it, Scott is also the first bionic man. Well, ... not exactly.

In reality, Scott was one of the first to undergo extensive orthopedic surgery to compensate for cerebral palsy. While these cutting edge techniques did in fact grant him the ability to walk, making him better ... stronger ... faster, his new abilities did not in fact come with the cool sound effects. S o began a lifelong obsession with science, technology, and the science fiction that inspires them.

Scott's love of all things science fiction and fantasy can be heard on various podcasts, including Articles of the Shadow Proclamation, Earth Station One, and Earth Station Who. Throughout the year, Scott travels the convention circuit, appearing at such conventions as Dragon*con, Time Lord Fest, and TimeGate, where he can be seen participating in Doctor Who related panels and speaking on such topics as "The Archaeology of Stargate".

Scott established Doctor Geek's Laboratory and Doctor Geek's Science Fair in the hope that it would encourage a rekindled sense of optimism for the future. That it would bring about enthusiasm for innovation. That it would bring the fictional world of tomorrow, one step closer to today.

Scott is also a consultant for the Science & Entertaiment Exchange, a volunteer network based out of Los Angles that connects productions with experts who can add a little science to the fiction.

It’s been a while, but I am proud to announce our latest episode! The investigation into the future of the 3D printer continues with hacker, maker, and geek extraordinaire Josh Pritt.  Meanwhile in a parallel universe Doctor Geek, Madame Oracle, Mister Creature and Intern Timmy must find their way home before Doctor Geek’s evil counterpart unleashes a replicating menace.

So why did it take so long between episodes? Well that would be a major spoiler!  What I can say is take a close look at this episode’s cover art.  That is a major hint.  You will be seeing our Future Sphere again real soon.  In the meantime, here is the latest activity pack created by Meagan for her homeschooling kids.  Join in on the fun!

Now that we have survived the 50th anniversary of that little show from England, we can now reveal the conclusion of the contest between Doctor Geek and Professor Pedantic.

This episode also marks the beginning of our investigation into the 3D printer.  How long will it be before we can print a cup of Earl Grey tea?
