Now: Boing Boing TV

Mark Frauenfelder, Xeni Jardin and the rest of the very successful Boing Boing blog team launched tonight. Xeni explains on the site:

The idea is simple. Explore the same kind of stuff we've been obsessing about since Boing Boing began nearly 20 years ago, only explore it now in daily video. Five days a week, and short: under 5 minutes each.

Here is episode 1: Video Link.

JardinFor the first few weeks, much of what you'll see will be produced in-studio, but we also plan to do stuff out in the world, and all over the world.

Boing Boing co-founder Mark Frauenfelder and I are co-hosting the first few weeks of Boing Boing tv, but expect to see the other Boing Boing and Boing Boing Gadgets editors, too -- Pesco, Cory, Joel -- along with familiar characters whose work and eccentricities have been chronicled here before.

And: you. We also welcome video produced by you, our community, our audience, our internet-friends, and we're working out exactly that might fit in the mix (we'd love to hear your thoughts on that).

The new venture is represented by International Creative Management. By the imperfect Technorati way of reckoning, counting links from other blogs, Boing Boing is the most popular Los Angeles-based blog and #3 overall, still a couple of notches in front of the Huffington Post.
