So this has nothing to do with the Black Mesa Research Facility?

Disappointed

The Foundation was founded in 1980 By JR, John and Andy.

This is neat! It's the first time that I've seen someone I've met personally on the Blue, and I'm happy that it's Sam -- his work is awesome.

I asked while drafting this post, and Sam is not yet "MeFi's own". But he does lurk and maybe this will draw him over to the, er, blue side. He tweeted it to his followers, so maybe he'll pop in yet.

I realize that all this may make it seem like I know him personally, but I'm just an admirer of his work! A not-so-secret admirer now, I guess. I'll stop now. But, really, Sam, if you do sign up & in, welcome!
