NewTeeVee Live Star: Boing Boing’s Xeni Jardin

It’s been a long, hard year at Boing Boing TV (the Xeni Jardin-hosted online video show version of the blog Boing Boing) as the show creators figured out how to translate a blog into video. Jardin tells Liz that her most proud moments have been interviewing Buzz Aldrin, David Byrne and John Hodgman — and the fact that Boing Boing TV has been “in the black” or profitable since day one.

Jardin says that in a week or so, the show will kick off a series of changes and enter 2009 with a lot of fun stuff…Yeah, an entirely vague explanation — Come on Jardin stop teasing us!
