I'm away from the office this week on a top secret mission, so instead of posting new stuff, I've scheduled a few vintage Boing Boing posts. I don't remember posting most of these, and I hope you don't remember reading them.
In 2006 the editors of Boing Boing (Xeni, Cory, David, and I) tried to produce a podcast called Boing Boing Boing. It was really hard to find a time for the four of us to get on the phone at the same time. I don't remember how many episodes we made. Four or five at the most. A few of the episodes are floating around on Archive.org. This is one of them. It ran in 2006. Original post here.
Episode #3 of the Boing Boing Boing podcast (our motto: "B cubed or be square") is ready for downloading. This time, our guest is Gareth Branwyn, our friend and senior editor of the bOING bOING print zine.
Gareth is a writer, the founder of Street Tech, and the author of many books about technology and cyberculture, including The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Building Robots (for which I had the pleasure of providing the illustrations).
In addition to interviewing Gareth about his critically-acclaimed 1993 Hypercard stack, Beyond Cyberpunk, we also discuss our favorite podcasts and look at some of our most interesting blog entries of the past week.

Mad maker, Peter Sripol, apparently got a zillion requests from his viewers to build an R/C model of an Ekranoplan, aka the Caspian sea monster, a Soviet-era ground-effects vehicle (GEV), a plane designed to skim over water. The results are amazing, the footage of it flying, of the ground-effect in action, is some of the […]
When I was a teen devourer of sci-fi, I was obsessed with the spaceship designs on paperback book covers. I would buy any novel or short story collection, however sketchy the contents seemed, if I dug the ship on the cover. Conversely, I would pass over well-regarded books if I thought the spaceship art was […]
If you remember your Norse mythology (or just watched Marvel’s Thor movies), you’re probably familiar with Heimdal, the god whose ever-watchful eye was entrusted with protecting the home of the gods in Asgard. Back on Earth, Heimdal Thor is also the name of a security package from Heimdal Security, that’s actually dedicated to much the […]
Everyone’s got their nose in a phone these days, and that doesn’t seem like it’s going to change anytime soon. With the increase in mobile device and e-commerce reliance comes increased need for developers who can build the apps we’re all so glued to. In fact, employment of devs is expected to grow up to […]
