In yet another attempt to bring order and usefulness to the comments section of a high traffic news site, Gawker has implemented a new comment system
. They are borrowing the basic concept from Slashdot that most comments will never be seen, and thus the focus is to find the interesting conversations that do occur under the article, and promote them with no regard for chronological order . The system shows some promise, although it clearly has a ways to go as a recent article failed to highlight replies in the comments from the subject of the article.
Also of note, the photo of Nick Denton used in the article is by MeFi's own mathowie

. I'm not sure how either of the aforementioned would like it if we archived the entire piece here (there's no archive link), so check it out soon (like now).

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!!!

I have a question for Matt. I notice on the Zeldman comment
that someone also has the same username as me. I am jay
. There is also another jay
. I don't think anyone would want to impersonate me, but for some people on this list, this might be a problem. We could all become mathowies
, I even created my own mathowie account
to see if this really works and it does

Personal rant time: I wrote my own resume
a while ago, and have been building onto it for a couple years now. To me, it is copyrighted material, just as anything else I write. So why is it showing up in all sorts of resume databases? I'm getting calls from recruiters saying they got it from Aquent
, Passport Access
, and various other resume sites. These sites seem to be sucking down resumes, putting them on their site, and making money off them. I can't see my own resume, since I haven't paid to look at it. I find PassportAccess to be especially annoying: they offer an opt-out page
. What the hell? Why should I even have to do this? It's my resume, not theirs!

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.
