Gweek 023: Cool apps and websites


Gweek is a podcast where the editors and friends of Boing Boing talk about comic books, science fiction and fantasy, video games, board games, tools, gadgets, apps and other neat stuff.

In episode 023, Boing Boing's managing editor Rob Beschizza and I spoke with David-Michel Davies, the executive director of The Webby Awards and the chairman & co-founder of Internet Week New York. DMD shared a bunch of recommendations for cool apps and websites (many from Netted, the daily mailing list run by The Webbys), and Rob and I talked about a few of our own favorites.

We closed with a terrific song called "KABOOM!" by the 8-bit-happy band I Fight Dragons. The album 'KABOOM!' from I Fight Dragons was released today on Photo Finish Records. Here's their new video for the song "The Geeks Will Inherit the Earth."
