The new MetaTalk is now live as is the MetaFilter Network site, which also mentions another new site in the works. Discuss the MetaTalk site, and if you want to take issue with me, of all people, self-blogging, do it here.

Wow, the ticket stub site has the potential to be awesome. (Now I'm glad that I have all those Yankee game and jazz concert tickets taped to my wall!)

Well, for what it's worth to Mr. Davis, Zeldman & Haughey

oh. my. god. matt. you have no idea what you're unleashing with the ticket stub site.
I kept 90% of all my tickets over the last decade... just waiting for a chance to talk about ALL the gigs I've seen. Can't wait. :-)

Yeah, that is awesome. I was going to make my own little project (10 years worth) but this is *so* much better. Again, thanks Matt (I've been saying that a lot in the last few days.)

Um, Matt? Do they not share an auth database?

the tickets thing is genius. i see it and CROON forming a network of music-based personal narrative sites. hmm. now where's the VINYL site?

Giddy, just giddy. Late May seems so far away.

OK - so if we have a killer idea to become a channel we get in touch with you? And this becomes a distributed group of mini-communities with some shared entry point and interface but otherwise independent? Or something like that?

I've been working out a plan similar to this with some virtual community friends of mine - I'd love to help in any way to explore this, if you need a hand!

I'm glad to hear the ticket stub thing is striking a chord. I bet the majority of entries will be music-related, but a couple people mentioned other stubs I never thought about - the valet parking stub they saved from their first real job interview - the movie stub from a first date, etc., so I'm going to try and keep it as open as possible in regards to postings. I should really start a thread on the coming soon page itself.

Mike - my plans are to make fun and engaging sites that everyone here can contribute to. I have this user base of over 800 people that I'd like to bring together to collaborate on interesting sites.

If you have an idea for a site, shoot me an email, I'm upgrading the server soon and will have plenty of room to grow. If we can come up with 5 or 6 more collaborative sites this year, I'd be a very happy man.

Oh - and I am going to be doing something with - probably some sort of hosting thing.

(following up on zeldman) Synchronicity... today, at work I had NOTHING to do (starting to get a bit doubtful about this job...) so I started redesigning Croon.

I'll say it more loudly.

Matt? Does the new MetaTalk *not* share it's authentication database with MeFi?
posted by baylink at 12:01 PM on May 8, 2000

yeah, it shares all the same userbase, but I didn't set the customization cookies on login yet. Will do tonight (then your font settings should be the same on metafilter and metatalk).

Hmmm... my problem is that I can't *log in* to MT, even by hand typing my password.
