ALAN BRADLEY TO HEADLINE MAJOR ENCOM PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT
March 24th, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Newly-minted Executive Consultant Alan Bradley will introduce the latest addition to the Encom International product library on April 2 in San Francisco.
Software giant Encom ushered in the digital age with an unrivaled library of gaming titles. Now, Encom International circles the globe with advanced software systems that include communications, sports, entertainment, navigation, agricultural, health care, construction, weather, military and governmental applications on every continent.
Bradley began his career with Encom as a security systems engineer and rose through the ranks to be named CEO in the early 1990s. When he exited the executive suite, he took on a far greater role. His visionary research turned Encom into the industry leader in sustainable production and distribution methods — methods which are now the best practices for technology companies around the world. “Whether the challenge is to establish communications in a national disaster, or keep kids engaged as they battle Recognizers, I love what I do. Encom will always be my home. ”
CEO Kurt Hardington sums it up this way: “Alan’s new title and role reflect his unique position as part of the Encom story. He keeps us grounded, yet he’s the first to move forward when technology takes us in a new direction. That’s why he’s perfect to present our newest product – it’s where we’ve come from and where we’re going.”
Alan Bradley will take the stage at 8pm in Justin Herman Plaza on April 2 to unveil the next generation in Encom innovation.
IGN has also posted the following video interview with Encom’s Alan Bradley (played by Bruce Boxleitner):

A new viral site has popped up for Tron Legacy. Cheat Code is a site that allows you to enter the names of Encom employees and get their password and username to login into the Encom International Employee Intranet and view other employee’s emails.
Here’s one example of an email I found when I “hacked” into Alan Bradley’s account.
This site also leads to yet another site HERE that shows the virtual desktop of Kurt Hardington, Encom’s Chief Executive Officer. Once on his desktop, you can click the logo in the upper left-hand corner and then click System Chat, which will enable you to watch a video conferencing conversation between Hardington and another Encom employee, who are discussing Alan Bradley.
Finally, Walt Disney Germany has released this shiny TRON LEGACY animated poster, check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
