I don’t remember how jonchius [http://jonchius.com], a talented, wry and culturally literate web programmer and designer out of Toronto, CA, came into my streams, but as time has marched, we’ve made reciprocal infiltrations into all of our virtual circles and my life since has been infused (suffused?) with his adventures.
His twitter stream, a loosed consciousness romp that has nothing to do with programming but everything to do with coding, has connected me to a consortium of high and low philosophical provocateurs. Sometimes it’s the people hiding in plain sight who can speak the most relevant truth, because they are not only present, they are invisible to authorities (for now) and unfiltered by agenda.

jonchius changes handles and url’s on a dime to suit his mood and perspective (in the last couple months on twitter, he’s been neuer_panda, pandarchy, pandatje, pandamonium, panda-ebooks, and as of this writing, ionchivs). I look forward to meeting him IRL one day, provided the Canadian-US border remains open. Pandas forever.
