Marginwalker — MetaFilter for the technocrat elite.

LOL. I wondered how long this was going to take, if it happened at all.

Oh, I'm not sure "technocrat elite" is quite what we were going after. I at least - there were two of us whut put this together, and we each had our say - wanted a mix of participants heavily titled towards the *non*-obvious *non*-"A-list" *non*-usual suspects.

I'll put it this way: it's an honor to see some of those names posting on marginwalker, sure. But what makes me happier still is to see them interacting with people you probably haven't heard of - yet.

I think it's also too early yet to see what flavor the site will develop in the fullness of time, though I clearly have my ambitions, desires, and strategies to achieve them. We shall see.

And I suppose I personally have no choice but to cop to card-carrying membership in the Prada-Meinhof Gang.

It's so cool to see a community website of thinkers, where every other word isn't a misspelled profanity and every other phrase isn't a fallacy.

Also, that site sucks, and adamgreenfield is gaay.

Seriously: very very cool. Plus, I think the word "tragectory" recently invented there is the most useful thing I've ever heard.

Great link, great idea, & nice site. I look forward to many visits there.
I love a place that's capable of dropping its preconceptions.

As for "technocrat elite", sounds like a good candidate for entry in the urban dictionary.

Uh, I think that's spelled "ghey". You need to study up on your l33t dialog, RJ.
