Jeff "Hemos" Bates

One of the two co-founders of and a former Penguicon guest of honor returns to join us this year!Jeff Bates keeps busy contributing to and moderating the Slashdot discussions under his "nom de plume" of Hemos. Slashdot (whose motto is "News for Nerds. Stuff that matters." You've just got to love that) is probably the single most interesting Internet hangout for the true tech weenies of the world. (Many of which we hope will be at Penguicon!)

Jeff is also involved in providing material for, and managing other websites owned by the Open Source Development Network, Inc. (the current owners of Slashdot), and is also a big fan of The Onion. He and Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda also launched the site Everything2.

The nickname "Hemos" is a mangling of the name of a plant found on Michigan dunes. That probably indicates something.
