My name is Blake and I've been working on creating a "plausible" science fiction universe. I just stumbled on this site. I wish I found it sooner!
I have an IT background like datacenter, EMC SAN, VMWare, Apache, NGINX, MySQL, MS SQL, IIS, programming languages, etc etc
I've been out of work because I got schizophrenia, which really sucks.
I went overboard trying to make my universe realistic but I think I'm pretty much done. I'll take the time to read over all the predictions on this site first, then I'll get to writing some short stories that take place in my universe.
My site is: http://www.fractalfederation.com
You can read about all the elements in my universe and you can post your own universe if you want.
