Fabricatorz has existed for some time as an oral tradition of storytelling. Our goal is to get you involed, and that means we must demystify the Fabricatorz Cultural Operating System. If you have questions which you think should be answered and added to the FAQ, please send us an email.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, after surviving two close encounters with C19 in Hong Kong and again in Italy, after arriving to safety in St. Louis, I began chatting with my long-time friend, Gloria Chiang. She too (like you) was in lock-down, but in Singapore. Even though she is from Singapore, she could not get back to her life in Beijing. Both of us were stable at home, and neither of us have idle hands. Time to use our energy to fight for humanity!
