Where Would You Send Someone You Love For Christmas?
If you had unlimited funds, what would be your Hannukah or Christmas present for someone you thought really deserved one? For instance, our genial host and the owner of MetaFilter, Matt Haughey
. A lot of us
are presently engaged
in clubbing in to offer him a short visit to Iceland
. y6y6y6 has even set up a website
to solicit funds and suggestions, following enormous interest
on MetaTalk. Well-known weblogs like boing boing
are chipping in too. isn't it time we showed our appreciation? (Matt, please don't read or delete this!
ten years of my life
seems to be our fearless leader's newest project.
it's an idea i've picked up from time to time and then discarded because i don't think i have the discipline.
does anyone know if similar projects out there?
go matt! i'm looking forward to this a lot. (via boing boing)
is a collaborative event calendar that looks like it's going to be interesting. (Reviewed here
by some guy.)
Stop Street Spam!
Roadsides and telephone poles are full of the crap. Matt's link
(and the double post) reminded me of something happening in the Austin area. Someone is spray painting "SPAM" over the herbalife
and other signs [or painting over or cutting off the phone numbers]. Austin is also recruiting citizens
[pdf]to root up these signs. Does your neighborhood have too many of these signs? I'm getting some spray paint and becoming a sign shark.
Shift Magazine Turns 10
They've got a fine commemorative Collector's Issue out, which fittingly includes various Top 10 lists. Among them: Reasons Weblogs Exist, Sites Wil Wheaton Quite Enjoys, and Top Heavyweights On The Web (which lists our beloved Matt Haughey at No. 8, two places above the ubiquitous Evan Williams). A damn good read.
Visual Truth or Random Image?
We always thought we knew the man
behind MetaFilter. But go to Google's Image Search
and type: founder of metafilter. Well . . . now you really know.
Matt H. and MeFi in New York Times
(may require free subscription to access) -- an Andy Wang piece about using the Amazon Honor System to keep websites like his
afloat. What I want to know: why does Matt wants to hurl that laptop into the bay?
Woohoo! The First Annual Nothings Award...
I've never heard of Lileks
before, but the snazzy site [almost] makes me forget how frustrating contentless splash screens are.
Who IS that man
on the cover of Brill's Content this month!? A direct link to the cover image is here
(I searched to see if this had been mentioned today and couldn't find any threads on it. Forgive me if I missed previous mentions...)
Mathowie needs our help...
seems he can't figure out how to speed up his morning toast. Certainly someone here can point him towards breakfast enlightenment...
Matt has redesigned his home
and it's certainly not the same as before. It seems to be the season
your weblog. Lots of change is in the air, and the results are a breath of fresh air, if these sites are anything to go by. (Note
too, that he's using custom coldfusion/SQL code on this
box to serve his personal site.)
Creator of MetaFiler: Wedding Bliss,
As Matt's Brother, I can report to all here at MetaFilter, the Wedding went as picture perfect as they imagined!
No rain, Everybody was in time for the ceremony, Lucky no Television Reporters crashing or blocking streets, No helicopters hovering above.
It was a beautiful, simple gathering of friends and family
Here are the Exclusive Photo's only for the Metafilter Community:
Exchanging of Vows
and The Big Kiss!
Best of luck to Matt & Kay!!!
There's a story...
About a man name Haughey...
Who attended a party...
(sing this to the brady bunch theme song)
Relax - you've got a cool job now, so just take it easy ;-)
Well, I tried....
Although upgrading the hard drive on this server was unsuccessful, hopefully it was amusing to some of you. Especially those that don't use NT.
A group of folks from the evolt.org
mailing list decided to do something to protest etoys's recent actions. One person purchased a domain, another setup web space, a couple people wrote some articles and I designed the site
. Keep that boycott going.
Woo hoo! I got my story about the 30th anniversary of the Internet posted at Slashdot
. My original version included photos
, so you might want to check out that version instead.
Wow, this is a great flash site
that I've never heard of until I read about it in a book
. I can't remember the last time I found a new site in a book. It's funny, with the instantaneous nature of the web and the prevalence of weblogs, it's not often that you see something new from something that was probably written and printed six months ago. Actually, the book has a lot of great finds in it, and it's great to look at.
