Boing Boing launches “TV” program

Not exactly in the MAKE: Blog wheelhouse, but we want to take a moment to give a hearty shout-out to our pals over at Boing Boing. It’s been a big couple of weeks for them. First they launched the main site redesign and the new (and most awesome, IMNERHO) Boing Boing Gadgets. Now they’ve launched Boing Boing TV, 25 minutes a week (five minute segments every weekday) of Boing Boing “Talkies.” It’ll be co-hosted by Mark Frauenfelder (also MAKE’s Editor-in-Chief) and Xeni Jardin. Fellow BB editors Cory, David, and Joel will also chime in. The first episode includes visions of the future in turn of the century French lithographs and a robot playing Patsy Kline’s “Crazy” on a theramin. What’s not to love?

Congrats guys. And good luck in the videodrome.
