2016 Election Prediction Contest results

Back in January, on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, I set up an election prediction contest for you fine folks, and got 74 ballots in response.

A few years back (ten maybe...)

Can't find post about infosec/hacking challenges

I could have sworn that a few months ago someone posted an FPP to a webpage made by a couple of guys who designed some interesting "real world" infosec/cryptography/hacking exercises meant to expand awareness of internet security, and now I can't find it anywhere. [more inside]

MeFi in the time of Trump - managing news

Like many, I was simultaneously hooked and exhausted by the pre-election rolling thread. I was very much looking forward to its demise. It's going to be a long four years. Can we find a way to keep the good and ease the pressure? [more inside]

It's mid-November and I don't think there's been a NaNoWriMo post yet this year. How goes the NaNo? What are you writing? [more inside]

At least three scenes with Homer.

I am trying to find a post that I could have sworn was posted to AskMetafilter within the last month, but my Googling and frantic searching through threads is not backing me up on that. [more inside]
