Mission Statement: SciFi Vision
is a place for those inspired by the strange, fantastic, and unknown. It is dedicated to those who share their talents with us and shine, whether it be on our televisions or on the silver screen. Here you will find interviews with celebrities, reviews from multiple genres, and other pop culture news and multimedia. While we originally started with a love for science fiction and fantasy, this site is no longer just for any one genre.
We strive to bring you the best pop culture content. We don’t simply regurgitate from other sites. We have relationships with various talent, television networks, and studios; much of our content comes direct from the source. We also post numerous exclusive interviews that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s also important to us to bring you the best live coverage from events and during interviews.History:
Jamie Ruby has been designing and running websites since before high school. Originally selftaught, she found a love for computer art early on and won multiple awards for graphic arts in school.
It first started getting serious around 1996 when Jamie fell in love with The X-Files
and decided to share her love with the world. It soon became much more than just a teen's website.
Jamie started publishing weekly reviews and recaps for the episodes for not just the site, but also for her own mailing list that started with only a few people reading her thoughts, but soon grew to close to 1000 X-Files
fans who waited for her early weekly recaps. Jamie would spend every Sunday watching an early feed, writing a very detailed play-by-play, and screen capping photos.
In 1999, Jamie had a rare opportunity to visit The X-Files
set in Los Angeles. It was because of an article she wrote for her fansite that she became a published author. Her favorite science fiction magazine, X-Posé
, paid Jamie to write a condensed version of the article and send photos. The article
was published in their January of 2000 issue (#42), along with a small photo of herself with Gillian Anderson on the cover.
Jamie's love of website design continued as the site grew and she started creating other fansites, including some official actor fansites, including that of Jason Schombing and Dan Payne. Soon her sites started to include her own photos from conventions and other events.
Eventually Jamie wanted to create the ultimate fansite where all of her other fandom sites could coexist and created SciFi Vision.
With a love for discussing pop cuture, especially science fiction, Jamie started appearing on live podcasts with host Shaun Daily (The Shaun O'Mac Show
/Subject 2 Discussion
), and eventually became cohost of Bionic Angels
with Kenn and Angela Gold. It wasn't long before the podcast started getting some exclusive actor interviews. It was then that Jamie started writing for their online magazine, MediaBlvd
, and interviewing celebrities for them.
During this time, Jamie also cohosted other podcasts, including Middlecast, a podcast for the short-lived series The Middleman
, and Lost Causes
, which originally focused on Lost
, but expanded to include other shows and eventually became known as Fandom Access
(among other spinoffs including On the Fringe
Soon Jamie completely revamped SciFi Vision
to be a place for her to post not only sci-fi news, but also her articles published on MediaBlvd
In 2010, SciFi Vision
moved out on its own to become its own media site. Jamie, however, still often works closely with MediaBlvd
. They often do joint interviews or podcasts, and Jamie occasionally still writes for the magazine.
SciFi Vision, which has now been expanded to include not only science fiction, but other genres, continues to grow and now boasts hundreds of interviews and reviews, including numerous exclusives.
Jamie Ruby has a BFA at Youngstown State University in an independent cirriculum, which includes digital art, web design, photography, and theater. Jamie currently resides in Western Pennsylvania.
