mathowie transfers ownership of MetaFilter to cortex

Big news: a few days ago Matt Haughey and I signed paperwork to transfer ownership of MetaFilter from him to me. This is sorta huge and sorta not a big deal at the same time: things are fine and basically nothing is changing on the site as a result, we’re just keeping on as before. I’ll talk about the whole thing below the fold. [more inside]

This needs to be a ten hour YouTube video loop

In which a community website moderator and artist of some repute cleans up a stencil -based work and OH GOD THIS IS SO SATISFYING. Recent works by the same artist include fractal images, cubes, and more peeling.

MetaFeatured Snippets

A little while ago Google introduced “featured snippets” that get listed at the top of a list of search results. (Their perils have already been discussed on the front page.)
Surprisingly, if you search for “cheevos” you’ll get a featured snippet clipped from a blog post by one of mefi’s own. I’m curious if anyone has seen other MetaFilter, AskMe or MetaFilter-adjacent content show up in a featured snippet.

Happy birthday Cortex!

I have a handy built-in reminder due to my own date of emergence - happiest birthday wishes to our over worked, ever patient, and exceptionally talented overlord Cortex! Thanks for all that you do.

Happy birthday, Cortex!

I hope you got the weekend off to play. We know the queue is there for just that reason. To let the mods have downtime, just like folks. And let us all cool off despite the season. Your first birthday as our dear leader. Hope this has made your life sweeter. We'll also see you on the "Tweeter." Dear Cortex, nothing could be neater! Happy birthday, dude!

Happy birthday Cortex!

I can't believe no one has said anything to our "datawranglin' mod" until now, but many happy returns!

Happy birthday, Cortex!

"Moderator, chief datawrangler at Metafilter", "cortex is a 32-year-old musician, computer geek, and generally reckless creative-type person in Portland, OR. His username on mefi is “cortex”, for reasons that aren’t particularly interesting."

Happy birthday, Cortex!

Coooooooooooooortex! Happy birthday, dude! I think dude deserves a shoutout for his mod duties, for MeFi music, for all the data crunching, for the fascinating subsites and just for being an all-around outstanding contributor to the site. So, thanks man and again, happy natal anniversary!

cortex, easy on the deletions!

This was not a good deletion. I think cortex pulls the trigger too quickly sometimes on the deletion of Ask Me posts and more restraint would be appreciated. [more inside]

Ouroboros is a cat.

Lute Cat (not to be confused with Zither Cat) began life as a deletion reason on the blue, was briefly batted about on the grey, was then auctioned off for charity, and is now residing in Projects, ready to be purchased and taken home. Oh won't you love him, Mefi.

cortex made a meme

Folk music, viral weirdness, and the Ballad of Steven Slater. Josh Millard, known to all and sundry here as cortex, analyses how The Ballad of Steven Slater written by Max Sparber, a.k.a. Astro Zombie, which cortex set to music and performed, went viral. How viral? Wolf Blitzer viral.

"One of you will betray me with a self link before the cock crows thrice"

Some time ago, I did a post about parodies of "The Last Supper". Little did I know at the time that the Greatest Spoof Ever would feature MetaFilter's Own Jesus H.
