“There is no patch for human stupidity.” It's actually kind of an awesome thing. Boredom and stupidity have generated most of the really fun things to do in the world. Except for the Internet. That was all about making it easier to kill people.

When he's not changing diapers, watching movies or sitting next to a cactus somewhere in the desert waiting to fuel or repair an off road race truck, Patrick is probably testing products or building projects for Systm and Tekzilla,'s programs for people that love tech.

He's written hundreds of product reviews for the likes of PCMag, Cnet, PC World, CPU and TechTV, launched the online video and podcast group at Ziff Davis where he produced and hosted 188 episodes of DL.TV (and learned more about Flash dev, routing tables, Content Delivery Networks, compression tools, RSS feeds, log file analysis and traffic verification than he ever thought he'd need to know) and started using computers back in the late CP/M early DOS days.

And, yes, back when he had more hair, he was answering tough tech questions, skewering products and beating dead PCs with a sledgehammer at TechTV when he hosted a live daily television show for four years, The Screen Savers.


Embrace digital technology. Join the Tekzilla crew and make your tech work better for you. Or you can go live in the woods with an axe.
