And Now a Word from Our Sponsor...!

After lengthy and comprehensive negotiations, ENCOM International, "the World’s #1 Software Provider" has agreed to sponsor E82 – The Epcot Legacy! As part of this partnership, E82 will provide additional coverage of all products and services. Encom executives have assured me that the core focus and vision of E82 will not in any way be altered or changed because of the sponsorship.

I for one am excited about the many possibilities that this partnership can provide. The History of Encom and the History of Epcot have always been intertwined since the construction of the park. Founded in 1972, Encom Computers, provided many of the computer systems and controller units for many EPCOT Center attractions. Most notability, ENCOM provided many Computer Generated Effects for the Climax of Universe of Energy - and ENCOM also developed a demonstration of its famous digitizing effect that was later used at part of World of Motion’s SpeedRoom Finale.

IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE, expect to see a lot more coming from Encom International & E82 – The Epcot Legacy!


  1. Whoa. Be careful with those guys. Encom has a long history of cheating people out of their work. Even one of their flagship products (a game I believe) was stolen from it's original developer.

    But don't take my word for it, Kushner & Lisberger did a good job documenting the hole sordid affair. I'll provide a link as soon as I find it.

  2. Wow, that . . . is extremely cool. You really had us going with the whole "corporate sponsor" thing. Nicely played.
