Join me in welcoming Lisa Katayama and Steven Leckart
to the Boing Boing
fold. They'll be coming aboard with Rob and I to work on BBG
, although I wouldn't be surprised to see them contributing to Boing Boing
just every now and again, as well.
You'll get to know them through the blog-o-squawk soon enough, but it'd be a shame to waste such bona fides
as our two new contributors have collected.
Lisa you guys will know as a former guestblogger at Boing Boing
, as well as her blogging about Japanese culture and tech at her blog Tokyo Mango
. She's also contributed to WIRED
, Popular Science
, and the The New York Times Magazine
. (There's a big feature coming up there, isn't there, Lisa? Can you talk about that yet?) And of course she's the author of Urawaza: Secret Everyday Tips and Tricks from Japan
. She has two min-pins named Malcolm and Ruby (no relation to my car), as per the requirements for BBG
contributors. She's @tokyomango
and will be her first name at boingboing.net
once I figure out how we actually do our email forwards here.
Steven's work has been seen at WIRED
(and was the founder of ALL CAPS MAGAZINE*
), as well as the editor of our friend Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools
. He also helped Chris Anderson with the books The Long Tail
and the upcoming Free
as a writing assistant. He has a pug named Gus, as per the requirements for BBG
contributors. He's @stevenleckart
on Twitter and will be his first name at boingboing.net
once I get off my ass and set up that email account. [photo by Jonathan Snyder
Welcome, you two! I'm stoked to have you aboard our undulating tanker ship of bubbling mutant goo.
