boing boing gets a new look, comments, and a companion blog

it seems like this is going to be one of those weeks. following yesterday’s digg redesign, boing boing has now unveiled their new layout and features. at first glance, the new look seems like a cross between the federated media design and the wired blogs, but you start liking it after a little while. the design is much cleaner and since it displays less content at a time on the screen, it is not as overwhelming as the previous layout (which displayed multiple posts with graphics, etc, at one time).

in addition to the new look, boing boing is also reintroducing comments and they have hired a community manager to oversee the conversations on the site, and have launched a companion gadget site.
