My name is Dave Herndon, ever since my homeworld of Gallifrey was time locked I've been just travelling the cosmos, then they invented comic books, and cartoons. Now I run this blog and talk about nerdy things whenever I can. No matter what happens, if you stoke me a clipper, I'll be back in time for breakfast.

Detcon1 Chair Tammy Coxen said, “Video games have become an increasingly important part of the science fiction and fantasy universe, and blend technology and storytelling in interesting ways. We are excited to have Mr. Davis as a guest at Detcon1.”
At the convention, Mr. Davis will share stories from his career, participate in “play the developer” sessions, and offer advice for those interested in entering the video games industry.
