Well, I was sworn to secrecy, but now the LA Times has what is the biggest webculture story of the month at least, so: BoingBoing is launching a daily videocast.

BoingBoing is already the elephant in the room; in terms of eyeballs, it’s now on a standing with newspapers (as opposed to websites like this one, which, at best, have the same kind of readership that Frank Chu does). Hell, BoingBoing probably broadcasts to more people than does Air America every day.

Adding video is huge in ways I don’t really have time to get into now (and people are still lagging behind the last huge thing they did). For now, I’m just going to say that I think this is wonderful, and congratulations to all.

    Amazingly enough, Frank Chu and I have never been on Market at the same time…

    Frank Chu, not Frank Cho, you idiot.

  5. I know, I had just read an article about him at the time, though and that’s how I read it at first. You were right about the idiot part, though.
