Favrd is a list of the best Twitter posts, based on a few simple principles, the most interesting of which is probably "by any means necessary, web-strategy, social-media, online-marketing webcocks - unaware as they are of how toxic their presence is in the arenas they cannot shut up about - must and shall be filtered out of view." That filter results in a surprisingly entertaining subsection of Twitter, a sort of super-short story collection. Original announcement from creator Dean Allen.
What would have you done differently? A collection of regrets that run the gamut from silly ("Cut the blue wire.") to poignant ("Not let her go.") to just plain inspiring ("Taken that chance.").

Hoopla.com Stolen, Net Sol says, "Oops! Not Our Problem!" Leslie Harpold's Hoopla.com was stolen from her through a series of dodgy faxes (or something...) and now, Network Solutions is throwing up their hands and telling her they can't do anything. If this doesn't beg for Metafilter community action, I don't know what does.
