Boing Boing is a technology and "tech culture" website established by Mark Frauenfelder and his wife, Carla Sinclair, first as a 'zine' in 1988 and then as a website in 1995.

The website has published several articles related to #Gamergate and the preceding series of events. Many of these articles have expressed sentiments contrary to causes that they have promoted[1][2][3] in the past.

Most of Boing Boing's staff have formerly worked for Wired magazine.

Articles Preceding Gamergate

On the 9th of July 2007, Boing Boing's co-editor and writer, Cory Doctorow, published an article about a short animation and website produced by Frank Wu, husband to Brianna Wu.[4][5][6]

Doctorow has previously received cover artwork from Frank Wu for one of his short story anthologies.[7][8][9]

He has also photographed Frank Wu as he won a Hugo award in 2007,[10][11][12] and promoted Brianna Wu's artwork on the 24th of August 2009.[13][14][15] Doctorow and Frank Wu co-hosted a sci-fi convention together in Philadelphia on November 20, 2009.[16][17][18]

The Boing Boing team have so far not disclosed any personal or commercial relationship between editorial staff and the Wu family within their #GamerGate articles.
