The latest web-based release from As If Productions, ThisIsFractopia.com is the home base of the Fractopia Podcast: forecasting the facts of tomorrow through the fiction of today. In this series, AIP founder Tod Foley examines current trends and developments in technology and science fiction, in order to create realistic visions of our potential tomorrow. Readers and writers of near-future science fiction will find much to think about in these topical episodes and exclusive interviews.
Midnight Science Club is for anyone interested in science and related fields. It’s a club operated BY scientists and FOR scientists of all ages. As If Productions was brought in by the developers at Zumwinkle.com to add some fancy UI elements via jQuery, and to optimize the performance of this media-rich site.
