Was a game designer/programmer at LucasArts in the early years, now an iOS game & kids book app developer (using Corona SDK and Unity3D) and eco tech geek.
I've been involved with new media and technology since my wife, Annie
, and I co-founded the world's first public-access microcomputer center in 1977. Marin Computer Center
was a prototype for bringing new technology to the public.
During my last two years at LucasArts David was Manager of Entertainment Software on Mirage (a collaboration between LucasArts and Hughes Aircraft Corporation). This multi-player, networked location-based entertainment system was intended for theme parks.
After leaving LucasArts, we launched Electric Eggplant
to continue working on multimedia projects. In 2010, we began creating story apps for iOS and Android devices. We have 2 apps on iOS, NOOK Color/Tablet and Kindle Fire: Middle School Confidential 1: Be Confident in Who You Are
and Middle School Confidential 2: Real Friends vs. the Other Kind
. We've also created two Read-it-to-me iBooks, Are You My Friend?
for 4–8 year-olds, and People Are Like Lollipops
for 3–7 year-olds. Check our our Raymond and Sheila
series (iBook, Kindle, and print), and Annie's new parenting book, Teaching Kids to Be Good People
We’re now in production on the first official Rube Goldberg game, coming soon for mobile and desktop (@RubeGoldbergApp
When not playing with computers I enjoy science fiction, good films, photography, video making, and taking long walks with Annie through the hills of Marin County, California. We have two grown kids.

Totally agree, Noah Besides reading all well many of the retrospectives from the game-related websites to BBC to the main newspaper in Germany, the hundreds of tweets, writing my own thoughts, and especially reminiscing in a special facebook group for all ex-Lucas employees, this has been a very humbling and ...
