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.

The laboratory’s website is still under construction, but we wanted to make sure you got a sneak peek inside.  Doctor’s Geek’s Laboratory of Applied Geekdom is a place for dreamers, builders, inventors, and those who support them.

The first question we should answer is:  What is applied geekdom?

As discovered here in the lab, the phenomenon of Applied Geekdom is more than a passive interest in fiction.  It’s the application of that passion to realize those concepts that inspire us, to fulfill their promise and potential. To bring them into reality.  It’s science from fiction. How applied geekdom expresses itself, is all relative to the individual.

Let us know what applied geekdom means to you!  Send your responses tofeedback@drgeeklab.com.

The second question we should answer is:  What is the subject of the first investigation?

Our first investigation examines flying cars, of course!  We will examine how flying cars have become integral to visions and interpretations of the future.  Then we talk to the companies and designers who are working to bring the flying car to a garage near you, making the car of tomorrow a reality today.  In fact, we’re just about finished with this investigation so you can expect us to start airing episodes of Doctor Geek’s Laboratory in the near future.  In the meantime make sure to subscribe to our website’s RSS feed, follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page so you won’t miss a moment of the fun.
