Boing Boing: Issue 14
Boing Boing manages to place itself on the fine line between it's literary
brethren Wired & Mondo 2000. The regular columns and articles are wide and
varied and cover everything from gearhead culture to metabolism hacking. Boing
Boing seems to have the luxury of not taking itself as serious as Wired and not
making a sarcastic attack on itself and it's own culture as Mondo 2000 does.
This has a tendency to give BB a great deal of freedom to publish deranged off
topic interviews with the Barbi Twins of Playboy fame in the same issue as
Bruce Sterling dissects the dead media and Cliver Barker critiques lesbian
bondage and not take any of them more serious than the other. This leaves BB
with the longstanding reputation of still remaining in collaboration with the
digital underground regardless of their mass distribution and readership, a
definite plus in my book.
