Boing Boing

Boing Boing commenced its journey as a zine in 1988, initially titled bOING bOING. It was the brainchild of Mark Frauenfelder and his wife Carla Sinclair, who began the publication on paper. The magazine was subtitled “The World’s Greatest Neurozine”. In the initial days, the publication primarily focused on cyberculture and was influential in the development of cyberpunk. It garnered a reputation for its eclectic content which was at times quirky and cerebral, and its associate editors included Gareth Branwyn, Jon Lebkowsky, Paco Nathan, and David Pescovitz.Image:boing-boing-sample-cover

As the digital era beckoned, Boing Boing embraced the change and transitioned into a website in 1995. Eventually, in the year 2000, it was relaunched as a group blog, going by Boing Boing, and it described itself as “a directory of wonderful things”. The platform's content evolved to encompass a broader range of topics including technology, futurism, science fiction, gadgets, intellectual property, Disney, and left-wing politics.

Boing Boing has been acknowledged for its contribution to the digital landscape, earning accolades such as the Bloggies for Weblog of the Year in 2004 and 2005. Today, it continues to thrive as a website and is renowned for its diverse and engaging content.{{Categories}}
