In some sun-bleached barn outside Sacramento, CA c. 2099 a group of physicists, shady g-men, grad-students, tourists and an array of amateur explorers and nü-gonzo-revivalist writer-dudes gather around a collection of strange vehicles that resemble lunar landers. Each is painted a garish colour and prepped to "shift" along an angle of slippage into a crazy new plane of existence. Their mission, in the words of Gene Roddenberry, is to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. These are the voyages of the DayTrippers.
Each Daytripper is equipped with enough fuel to support its crew and dimensional-shift engines for, predictably enough, one day. The idea is simple: slip into alternate universes and pocket dimensions, steal, trade or plunder enough goodies to pay for the next trip, ship upgrades and your student loans. The other end of the universe is a crazy place, filled with strange, dark cities, glowing swamps and crystal spires under mysterious stars. Danger bounds, but so do the riches. Time to zip-up that Automated Survival Suit and seal those pods tight! Let's slip-n-slide!
The purpose of AllReality.com is to help scientists and non-scientists discuss physics and consciousness in the context of theories that explain research results in both of these fields. The site both archives the monthly meetings held by the All Reality Study Group in Santa Monica, CA, and serves as an online companion for the topics discussed at those meetings.
In 2014 The portfolio site of the architectural engineering firm StructuralFocus was migrated to a Drupal 7 framework. The Drupal infrastructure allowed us to add a variety of new features, and improved the site's performance speed immensely.
Possibly the most challenging theme job ever undertaken by AIP, the design for the new Al-Jazirah site was based on a RTL (right-to-left) Wordpress theme which needed to be converted to a Drupal theme while retaining all of its bells and whistles (sliding scrollbars, slideshows, etc).
When the Queen Latifah show needed an interface for browsing and annotating viewer submissions including both images and video, AIP was brought in by Digital Kitchen to provide it. The interface, hidden from public view, allows show producers to search and sort through hundreds of submissions arriving daily, and to share notes on which submissions might make good guests for the show.
