Boing Boing: Founder
I started Boing Boing as a print zine in 1988 with my wife Carla Sinclair.
Today, Boing Boing is the Web’s favorite site devoted to technology, entertainment, and culture. Boing Boing publishes a daily mix of short articles, long features, original videos, and podcasts that are shared globally by its dedicated fan base of tech and lifestyle influencers. An Internet mainstay, Boing Boing has won two Webby Awards and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bloggies. Time Magazine has named Boing Boing one of the “Best Websites” multiple times. Fast Company has called it "one of the most popular blogs on the planet" and the New Yorker said that Boing Boing is "read by geeks the world over."
The site's writers/editors are career journalists who have contributed to the New York Times, Washington Post, Wired, Scientific American, NPR, CNN, and many other news outlets. They’re frequent guests on television and radio programs, including The Colbert Report, CNN, The Rachel Maddow Show, PBS Newshour, and Martha Stewart, where they provide expert opinion about online culture, entertainment, and technology.
Continually growing and evolving, Boing Boing's archives now contain more than 150,000 posts and the site is read by millions of readers every month. In a public speech to the prestigious Gridiron Club journalism organization, President Obama commented that he checks Boing Boing daily. The site has been a clue on Jeopardy! Twice.
