How did you find MetaFilter?

When Automatic Media imploded and went down, some plasticlander (I forget who) created a blog and comment thread to keep everyone updated on where shit was at. A lot of folks were saying "go check out this Metafilter place" -- so I did. It was closed to new members at the time, but I put myself on the waiting list, desperate for my online community fix. Rushed to register when I got my note. And then I let my contributions languish for a time as Carl brought Plastic back online...


What is your fondest memory from MetaFilter?

i just can't quit you

Fond? I don't know. I find so many things here. Probably more than anything I'm grateful for how often the bullshit-calling is gracious. It helps you grow. But I wouldn't be honest if I didn't admit that it's almost an addictive relationship, which compels me to take long breaks.
