We Create Things
Its who we are

Syphernet Group is the holding company of Anthony "DancingBeaver" Jackson.


Here, you will find all the latest news about the Syphernet Group and its attached Projects, along with history and an archive of old and failed projects.


Originally founded in 1998 as the JWSN (Jacko Website Network), Syphernet.com was officially launched in March of 2003 and renamed to Syphernet Group in early 2018.


Originally launched as a hub for various community websites and forums, a pre cursor to social media, over the years it changed into the portfolio company of the founder.


While the plan for the future is the re-launch Syphernet Group as a real company, that is a way ahead right now.

I'm keeping Syphernet Group alive, because I am Syphernet Group.

Who are We?

The is what Syphernet Group is all about.


This is the list of the current Projects that Syphernet Group are involved in, while not a full list, there are always ideas being planned out that are just not ready for prime time.

Pure Boredom Media

About: Originally a name to add to any Machinima projects I made, Pure Boredom tried to grow into a fully fledge YouTube Channel.


Unfortunately, due to life, the YouTube channel was put on hiatus and in 2019 split off into Pure Boredom Media, a separate company handling all of Syphernet Group's media projects.


Pure Boredom Media currently handles Pure Boredom itself and DancingBeaver:Live, the upcoming live stream for Anthony.
