The Scobeleizer was at a dinner last night where he met Greg Bear - and he hadn't even heard of him before! Chuckle ;-) It didn't take long for Robert to get to like Greg.

A few years ago I was very fortunate to be working on a new game title and we talked to Greg Bear - he helped us brainstorm some ideas and story lines. He was incredibly helpful. Unfortunately, the title never shipped due to unrelated issues.

Of course, we were all massive Greg Bear fans - it was great just to hear him talk. During our first meeting we all brought books along for him to sign, which he graciously did. A very cool experience for the geeks...
