Blog a Day: Boing Boing

Boing Boing: A Directory of Wonderful Things

A collective of uber-geeks brings us a daily dose of the neat, weird, sexy, sassy, and just plain awesome. The daily gossip sheet of the techie counter-culture. Better living through technology. If you’re turned on by toasters, this is the place to be.

BoingBoing always seemed a little familiar to me, and I couldn’t put my finger on it, until sudenly it dawned on me that somewhere I have a book of articles collected from the magazine of the same name. Some post or another suggested that the website and magazine were one and the same, and I had a lightbulb moment. But it really doesn’t matter — BoingBoing is on my daily visit list, and it’s updated often enough that I often visit more than once. One innovation that I’ve always been rather cold towards is their Guestbar, a sidebar blog written by a guest blogger. It never really impressed me — never, that is, until Rudy Rucker took the side stage and set the bar impossibly high for all bloggers everywhere. Essentially, Rucker bebopped a whole book for our edutainment. It’s still up, at least the last post or two (they’re much longer than the main column’s content!), and something tells me it’ll be a while before the Boingers find someone with nerve enough to follow that act!

BoingBoing is just good. What more can I say?
