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.
The website of game designer and comic writer Ron Edwards, Adept Play presents a series of online seminars, actual play reports, videos and consulting threads for game designers, gamemasters and players of RPGs. The site features an archive detailing Edwards' history of contributions to the industry, as well as a unique threading solution for forum-like discussion of game topics. Roleplayers and designers can view all material and comment once per thread without charge, while extended interactions are available for paid members and Patreon supporters.
As If Productions recently upgraded the website of the Experimental Television Center from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. As Drupal developers know, the upgrade from 6 to 7 is particularly hairy and not at all intuitive. The job was especially complicated as the center features a massive Biblio-based database, which required manual reconstruction in MySQL.
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.
Support the game designs and theoretical work of As If Productions. Written especially for roleplayers, GMs, game designers, artists and neophiles who are interested in experimental applications of narrative engineering.

"An interest in any aspect of reality requiring concentrated attention in solitude is considered a particularly dangerous symptom. This leads to the interesting result that if anyone does take any interest in reality he is almost certain to be told that he is running away from it."
