Particleshock is a science fiction blog. We write about all the rockets, robots, and rayguns that inspire us to dream about life in an uncertain future; a life imagined to be somewhere between science and fiction. Those dreams may be wondrous anticipation or woeful foreboding … depending on current uses (or misuses) of science and technology.
A few years ago I was looking for a new domain. I only owned the .com and .net for the domain name I was using at the time. Some squatter snagged the .org before I could get to it. Always register all three at once! whatever. I wanted something new with a little bit of science and fiction: Something along the lines of “NUCLEAR STRIKE” so I combined particle and shock. Sorry that’s all there is to it. I’m not a physicist, I just play one on the Internet.
What particle shock really mean? Are you into high energy physics? Check out this Wikipedia article about Fermi Acceleration.
Who We Are
Surely somebody must run this website right? I guess that’s us. We’re just two guys who love science fiction, sitting at a computer. You can use the no frills all purpose heavy duty contact form to send us a message … if you’re into that.
What We Do
Text and images mostly. I’m socially inept and I don’t use facebook so um yeah … I have a website instead. I write (poorly) about things that interest me which apparently includes a lot of ellipses.
Why choose this website
Are you serious? I’m not selling anything. You won’t find a single good or service made/performed/sold by me anywhere on this site. I’m not hawking any SEO advice or web design expertise.
What makes it go
This website is currently powered by WordPress, although that could change on a whim if I feel like playing with another content management system.
