New Disruptors 55: Boing Boing Editors at XOXO 2013

In September 2013, I interviewed at the XOXO conference and festival the four lead editors of Boing Boing, this fine publication, a descendant of zine culture that is one of the most popular blogs on the Internet, on the occasion of its 25th continuous year in existence. For the day after Christmas, it seems appropriate to celebrate generosity and gift culture with Mark Frauenfelder, David Pescovitz, Cory Doctorow, and Xeni Jardin. (Photo by Jenni Leder.)
