Stephen Jondrew is a man of many talents much boredom. Stephen often fills his spare time co-hosting and producing several podcasts, maintaining/administrating a variety of websites and yet somehow he also keeps a full-time day job and even has a wife and son.

Stephen enjoys all things geeky including tech, comics, sci-fi, podcasting and a bunch of stuff in between.

OsX vs Windows? Windows... for now. Star Trek vs Star Wars? Star Trek, every time.

SP as he is known to his close associates has dedicated his life to working within the system to bring geeky humor and science fiction points of view to the mindless minions in charge of providing the freedoms, security and infrastructure to our lives. Given the opportunity, SP would gladly slip through the Stargate to begin colonizing a new planet and living the Little House On The Prairie life or suit up to mine the solar system's asteroids for precious metals, gems and hidden signs of ancient advanced societies. SP has a lifelong fascination with geeky shows, advanced technologies, revolutionary science and apocalyptic tales.
