Underlying this explanation was a deep-seated urge familiar to many biographers: a desire to come to terms with a father. St. John Philby, an adventurous colonial service officer who helped both the British intelligence services and the Saudi king navigate the murky politics of the Middle East, “was a man who regarded his opinions, however briefly adopted, as revealed truth.” In 1960, on his way back to Saudi Arabia from England, where he had gone to watch a Lord’s cricket test match, he stopped in Beirut to visit his son. Elliott threw a drunken lunch party for the Philbys and friends. St. John Philby, Elliott later wrote, “left at teatime, had a nap, made a pass at the wife of a member of the embassy staff in a nightclub, had a heart attack and died.” His last words were, “God, I’m bored.” Kim Philby buried his father (who had become a Muslim) with full Islamic rites, then went on a drinking binge that lasted for days.

The story of Boing Boing is about the recognition that in the digital world, it pays to be medium-agnostic. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should pursue every medium – different people have different skills, and different brands are suited to different media. What it does mean is that you shouldn’t think of yourself as a writer or as a radio producer any more than Mark thought of himself as a zine editor or Xeni thought of herself as a blogger. Rather than defining yourself by the medium you create, define yourself by what you offer to your audience. In Mark and Xeni’s case, they are curators of fun, creative geeky stuff.

How I almost signed over my entire life to Applebee’s for a gift card of an indeterminate amount.

Also their last tweet. Who do they think I am? I went to COLLEGE.

This is NUTS. 

What kind of scam is Applebee’s running, y’all?! There’s something rotten in the usually otherwise delicious Brew Pub Pretzels & Beer Cheese Dip.

What I’ve been up to today.

This is just incredible.

I’ve only spent ten percent of my energies on writing. The other ninety went to keeping my head above water.
