    What is Boobnewb?

    -BoobNewb is an online magazine targeted towards computer users who spend their lives using a computer.It is geared towards people who spend their time playing computer games 24 hrs. a day, surfing the internet 24 hrs. a day or doing anything on their computers that takes up a significant amount of their time. We formulated this lifestyle into an online magazine with different sections for different people’s tastes.We update the site with new articles every month and also put the old articles for the month into an archives so you can download them in an easy manner.

    What does the word ‘Boobnewb’ mean?

    -The word ‘Boob’ is not in reference to the body part of a woman but is a slang word for describing a lazy person. It’s a term that a mother might give to her son for being lazy or something; like “Clean up your room you boob!”. Tv also coined the phrase when they called the television the Boob Tube, meaning the lazy box or the lazy machine because you can sit in front of it and stare at it all day long in a lazy fashion. This is sort of the same philosophy of this site except instead of the television, the computer has now replaced the television as the new innovative lazy machine. The word ‘Newb’ or ‘Noob’ is a computer term like (LOL) or (BRB) that is used to describe someone that is new to something, a rookie or a beginner. Newb or Noob has been cut off a bit from the word Newbie. So a Boobnewb is someone who is new to the experience of being lazy in a way,they are joining not only a category of people but also a lifestyle that involves laziness and a lack of sleep.

    Why do you only have 1 new article per category a month? I want to see more articles!

    -We do only 1 article per month as most staff on this site have lives and with the amount of people that need to come together every month, we decided that only 1 article per month would be a good start. We understand that people would like to see more articles constantly on the site but for the near future that won’t be the case.

    What do you hope to gain by creating this website?

    -We hope to showcase a new lifestyle and of course have fun while doing this. After all, this is primarily a fun or humourous website, although occasionally we may discuss issues that are not funny or perhaps more of a critical website at times,we still rely on humour as our main goal.Our other goals include creating a loyal readership. We don’t need to be the most popular site on the earth but we would still like to have at least a loyal following of people who enjoy our website a lot. This site also will involve reader participation so we hope to create a friendly community where people can come to and hang out.

    I think your site sends the wrong message. Won’t people think that your website is a pornographic website with a name like ‘BoobNewb’?

    -Yes, they will think that this website is a pornographic website and I welcome people to think that because it helps to attract new readers. 75% of the internet’s popularity revolves around pornographic websites whether you like it or not. So if we can manipulate that number with a clever marketing campaign aimed at making the site to be something that it isnt,then we will take advantage of that. Sure, people might come to the site,and be pissed that it’s not what they intended it to be,but for every new person that visits the site; there’s a possibility that they might actually enjoy the website and stay for a bit and check it out which equals one new potential reader to us. :)

    Do you guys plan on ever releasing a paper version of this magazine or paper articles that people can take with them and read?

    -At this current time, the magazine is online only. If we ever see a way that we can possibly expand into that territorythen we will certainly consider it but not in the foreseeable future at all. We have since looked into the print article function with wordpress and are looking into incorporating it into the website sometime soon.
