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.

With our successful first season now behind us, and season two already in production, now is the time to address our first science fair.  What would a Doctor Geek’s Science Fair look like?  Well, just like everything else we do, it will be a mix of both science and fiction.  It will be a fiction convention mixed with elements of a classic science fair.

When you think of science fairs and world’s fairs, you probably think of the 1964 World’s Fair.  Thanks to the various Disney attractions that originated at this event, it is often thought of as a bright example of the imaginative use of technology.  The 1964 World’s Fair has made such a strong impact that it was even the template for the 1943 and 1974 Stark Expos.

Stay tuned as we continue this 50 year legacy with our own Science Fair in 2014.

TimeGate 2013 is almost upon us. This will be your chance to meet nearly the entire cast from Season 1.  That is right, Even Claire and Madame Oracle will be on hand to meet and greet.  Of course don’t forget to see us in action.

We will be presenting Doctor Geek Live!: The Science of Stargate.   Get there early to get your front row seat.  For more information on TimeGate, check out their website.

This is a big day for me.  My first book, Archaeology In Fiction, is now available via Amazon in both paperback and Kindle versions.  I have taken my popular Archaeology in Fiction discussion which I have presented at various sci-fi and fantasy conventions and transformed it into an in depth discussion of Archaeology as it is depicted in fiction.

What is the truth? In this book we will explore:

  1. The fictions surrounding archaeology
  2. Why we love and perpetuate those fictions
  3. What the truth behind the fiction really is

Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

Archaeology In Fiction is available here.
