Just as we invite guestbloggers to the Boing Boing blog, we periodically welcome guest correspondents to Boing Boing Video, our daily online video program.
I am thrilled to announce today that we have the honor of welcoming none other than Miles O'Brien, former CNN anchor and reporter, one of the most esteemed space and science journalists on the home planet, as a Boing Boing Video guest contributor.
Snip from his bio:
"Miles is a 26-year broadcast news veteran - with nearly 17 years as CNN's science, aerospace, technology and environment correspondent. He is now on his own - based in New York City - covering the same stuff across various media platforms."
Since departing CNN, Miles has been doing really interesting experiments in online media, including webcasts, features over at True Slant, live-twittering Space Shuttle launches, and other work we hope to showcase here on BB soon.
I've been watching him explore what is possible in online, independent news venues with the same sense of adventure that captivated me in his space reporting for CNN. The video he's been producing as a solo journalist is wonderful.
Miles is a personal hero. He's the best there is at what he does. It is with the absolute deepest respect that we welcome him as a guest colleague.

Well, her latest creative venture is Home Sweet Home, an activity deck for kids (and the young at heart). It offers inspiring prompts for whimsical, […]
Listed at $159,900 this 1,075 square-foot home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is bland on the outside but features rooms with outer space, submarine, tropical island, and moonbase motifs. The owners put a lot of work into it!
Now that the world is starting to re-emerge from its self-imposed COVID-19 quarantine, we’re all going to have to start making some adjustments to both short-term and long-term changes. And the questions… Should customers be hounded out of a store if they aren’t wearing a face mask? Are crocheted face masks safe or not? And […]
Maybe you had a piano teacher as a kid that drove you off the instrument forever. Or maybe you always wished for some serious training, but never found the time. Whether you have dreams of tossing off a Beethoven or Chopin piece at the drop of a hat or you have visions of being the […]
When you see that curved arrow on the side of a cardboard box, you instantly know that box came from Amazon. The unfurled rainbow feathers of a peacock immediately scream NBC. And a partially eaten piece of fruit in the profile is a world-recognized symbol of tech titan Apple. Icons are powerful symbols, condensing volumes […]
