Off to Boston. Will be thinking of all my East Coast friends that I will sadly probably not have enough time away from work to visit.

New Chris Carter (creator of X-Files ) series in development
Seems to be a series about Area 51, which I would no doubt find immensely interesting. I so miss Scully.

Is Chris Carter returning to his alien conspiracy roots? His long-in-development series, based on Annie Jacobsen's best-selling book Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base, is finally in official development thanks to AMC.

It would be interesting to see if they could still squeeze some life out of good ol' Area 51... it seems almost as pulped at this point as Roswell... ;)

(Though I loved Scully too. And Bigfoot.)

Anyone out there using Adobe Revel? If so, what are your experiences like? Good, bad, ugly?

A Texas family believes they have finally captured the elusive chupacabra. The mythical creature, which legend says kills goats and other cattle, has never been proven to exist, but many people have often claimed to have hunted the animal of which there are many different descriptions.

I would guess raccoon by the way it's using its paws.

Are you at Enterprise Connect this week?
I know a few of the folks in my G+ circles are also in the Unified Communications/voip/technology field, so if any of you peeps are at Enterprise Connect this week, please stop by the Dolby booth and say "Hi!" for an impromptu HIRL.

Hope to see some of you there.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Beer and dice.

Newly translated text gives hint to lost Ark of the Covenant
Indiana Jones fans around the world rejoice as a newly translated document, the Treatise of the Vessels, offers clues to whereabouts of the holy relic.

Spoiler alert: According to the document it says, "We hid it."

Introduction

Why, hello there!

First, let me thank you for taking the time to check out my profile, may you profit greatly from your curious mind. I always like to hear from people, so feel free to drop me a message saying “Hi”.

Stuff I typically post about
  • Movies, TV, Books & Retro Games: I was weened on old-school geekery
  • Geekery: History, Cryptozoology, Paranormal nonsense and other fun topics
  • Technology: Mostly related to the day job at Dolby Laboratories working on Dolby Voice and other technology industry stuff.
  • RPG Games: I write RPG adventure games on the side (and if you have to ask what that is, you probably aren’t playing one…)

To be honest, I do more commenting than posting myself.

Things I do:

  • Fund my renaissance man lifestyle by being a Sr. Product Manager at Dolby Laboratories responsible for Dolby Voice products
  • Live in San Jose, CA. 
  • Perform the role of single dad raising two intelligent, confident, beautiful daughters
  • Play ice hockey at Sharks Ice San Jose
  • Talk VoIP, Media Industry, and San Jose events and History as twitter.com/SNewton47
  • Publish books and talk geekery, movies, interactive fiction, D&D and Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG (DCCRPG) as my alter ego Thick Skull Adventures twitter.com/ThickSkullAdv  (www.thickskulladventures.com)
