How this all started
Originally, this project was to be a web meta-fictional endeavor,
jointly created by Jim and Michael.
It was a sort of comedic Web novel about relationships, about
academia, and about the collapse of civilization viewed through the
lens of conflicting doctrines.
It had a backstory (most clearly delineated in a
article); had a leitmotif of a
who, over time, would become a very
interesting character; included a
conflict of philosophical approach with
competing apocalyptic institutes. The story even had a mysterious
However, as we constructed the sites, doing background research on the
topics, and began gathering the scenario news, we
began actually eyeing the bare face of the likely apocalyptic horrors.
We shifted to producing only postapocology.com,
in order to shift the project, "mute the meta," simplify, and
focus on the true, frightening realities facing humankind. We spent a
year collecting information daily, thinking about what we were
Recently, we decided we needed to shift to a more
personal, direct, yet participatory framework. So we launched
apocadocs.com, which lets us jape, and joke, and quip, and snark --
and let others do the same.
We've got a lot of bits of humor thrown in -- as you'll see if you
browse around. Don't miss the PANIQuiz collection
in particular. And please help us build the funny, by adding your own quips
to any scary item.
If you know of other sites doing what we're doing, pass them on to
us, since we haven't found many that match. If you're freaked about what's
going on, what you're reading, what you're seeing, then forward this site
to others -- and let's see if we can get change a-coming,
and have some fun along the way.
