The people behind the popular Boing Boing
blog have decided to take on blogs like Engadget
and the other gadget blogs. You can see a longer list of gadget blogs here
on HowToWeb.com. Boing Boing's gadget blog is called Boing Boing Gadgets
or bbGadgets for short. Boing Boing co-founder Mark Frauenfelder announced
the launch of the new blog and says Joel Johnson, a former Gizmodo editor and Dethroner
founder, will be editing Boing Boing's gadget blog.
Our third major change is the launch of a brand new blog: Gadgets.boingboing.net. While Boing Boing has always covered personal technology, the four of us (Cory, David, Xeni, and I) believed a critical, intelligent, optimistic, and selective blog about personal technology and consumer electronics would be a fine addition to Boing Boing. But who could we trust to oversee a tech blog that the four of us would want to read? Actually, it wasn't hard to find that person. We went straight to Joel Johnson, a former Gizmodo editor and founder of Dethroner. Joel is smart, funny, knowledgeable, and curious about technology. He was our first, and unanimous, choice to run Gadgets.boingboing.net. And we're grateful he agreed to come on board.
Other changes on Boing Boing include a cleaner look and the return of comments. Teresa Nielsen Hayden, who has a blog called Making Light
, will be managing Boing Boing's comments and community.
