The Zine Machine Lives: Boing Boing at XOXO (Episode 55)


In September 2013, I interviewed at the XOXO conference and festival the four lead editors of Boing Boing, an online, thriving descendent of zine culture that is one of the most popular blogs on the Internet. For the day after Christmas, it seems appropriate to celebrate generosity and gift culture with Mark Frauenfelder, David Pescovitz, Cory Doctorow, and Xeni Jardin.

As with all the sessions at XOXO, the presentation is Creative Commons licensed, and I separately obtained permission from Andy Baio and Andy McMillan. Thanks, too, to Mike Gebhardt and Betty Farrier of, the folks who videotaped throughout XOXO 2012 and 2013, for providing the high-quality audio file.

You can watch the entire session as video, too, on YouTube.

To follow along with some of the early part of the interview, as I introduce the editors, you can view this PDF.
