Boing Boing Gadgets blog logo You might have also heard of its new gadget blog, located at, run by Joel Johnson, former editor of Gizmodo and current editor of Dethroner.

The change that interests me most is something that Boing Boing used to have and has now brought back: comments! Along with the comments comes the best person I could think of as an online community manager: Teresa Nielsen Hayden, whose Making Light is something I always cite as the best example of managing comments. For more on her comment-fu, see this article: How to Keep Hostile Jerks from Taking Over Your Online Community.
