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.

In this episode, Doctor Geek and Mister Flask discuss the City of Tomorrow, and how their talents can add to the project.  But what makes a City of Tomorrow? Is it simply modern architecture where everyone is living in the clouds or under the sea?  No, it is more than that.

The City of Tomorrow addresses the ills of mid-20th Century urban development by creating a community designed to better meet the needs of its citizens. The focus on community and ecological practices are the cornerstones of New Urbanism.

While Doctor Geek was inspired by Walt Disney’s Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT) even he had to admit only Walt could convince the world to build a domed city in the swamps of Florida.  Never for being one to give up, Geek and Flask come up with a solution that is out of this world.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Moss has been promoted to the new Director of Testing for the laboratory.  May God have mercy on her soul.

Special Note - This episode has a special appearance of Sacha Dzuba, as the Pirate Captain thanks to the audio drama Continuum Force, a Transmissions from Atlantis - Brazen Wench co production.

Creating the City of Tomorrow is no simple task.  Normally this is where we would begin a discussion of new urbanism, and the process of developing a community for the 21st century, but  that would be skipping over the inspirations behind such projects. 

Therefore, as we begin our investigation into The City of Tomorrow, Doctor Geek and Mister Flask decide to get a little spark of imagination by talking with George Wilkins, the musician extraordinaire who was responsible for the score in Horizons the attraction that represented the application of all the ideas that made up the drive behind Walt's Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.   

As with any project concerning the future, it’s important to remember, if we can dream it, we can do it!

This is no April Fools! Doctor Geek's Laboratory of Applied Geekdom is back! After years of being in production purgatory, the team pulls it together to complete the story started in the Director's Log series of episodes.

In this episode we pay tribute to NASA legend Katherine Johnson.  Truly if anyone could help fix DEUS-X and Madame Oracle it was her.
