A ten year update... and an SF meet-up.

Nearly 10 years ago, I commented on the green about having fallen head-over-heels for a woman only once, back in college - but how, after 13 years of wondering if I'd ever have that feeling again, we ended up moving in together, had just gotten married, and all was right in the world. weapons-grade pandemonium issued a challenge just three minutes later: Update us in ten years, eschatfische. And so we will! gucky and I are pleased to invite Bay Area MeFites to our 10 year anniversary party, featuring a 35mm matinee of When Harry Met Sally, September 10th at 1pm at the Roxie. RSVP information inside. [more inside]

14!

It randomly dawned on me that today, 14 years ago, I signed up for MeFi. I wonder what any users think this place was, is, and might be 14 years from now. [more inside]

Cake and ice cream for everyone! Except the dogs.

Today is my Metafilter account's 10th birthday! To celebrate, here is a photo from before I joined the site of a puppy sitting on a laptop which is displaying Ask Metafilter. To illustrate how long it's been, here is that puppy's fully grown son. [more inside]

Better late than never

I never got a chance to thank my fellow Chicago MeFites for going above and beyond the call of duty in celebrating MetaFilter's 15th Anniversary. Did you know we had 29 straight days of meetups in July? Here's just some of the stuff we did: [more inside]

MeFi helped me through the darkness.

Five years ago today I lost my wife suddenly and unexpectedly. MeFites came out of the woodwork with words of support, hugs, shipments of books, postcards, notes, and even pie!
I got advice from others who had been through similar tragedies; new friends and penpals; all together, it was an awesome show of love and caring. I made it through the darkness, and since then have also been able to help others who have had the same thing happen to them.
I just want to say thanks, again, to everyone. If this seems disjointed, it's because I can't find the right words to express how I feel.

Ten Years Gone

I meant to do this yesterday, but thanks for ten years MeFites. You people are fuckin jake by me.

As Balzac said, 'There goes another novel.'”

Last year, cortex went out of his way to quantify our participation on MetaFilter. I asked if he'd be willing to do it again, and he agreed. So if you want to know how many words you've typed into MetaFilter instead of that dissertation/novel/revolutionary manifesto, now is the time and here is the place.

The 10th parties are less than a month away, and there have been a few common questions since we launched the 10th site on May 5th. Since the actual parties are getting close, we thought we'd nail down a few things as well. In short, I'll cover deadlines for nominations and scheduling as well as payments. [more inside]

Help me get my t-shirt signed.

So, ummm, last July I went to Portland for this "Metafilter anniversary gathering" thing, and I got Jessamyn to autograph one of those nifty teal Metafilter shirts. However, my life will not be complete until I somehow coerce the other admins to sign it as well. I'm just waiting for the proper venue. So, how about it? Are going to have another anniversary gathering this year or what?

Zen and the Art of Scanning Cats

So you've been planning for years to be the first person to make a post concerning scanning cats tonight. I can personally tell you, it is like joining a very prestigious and sexy VIP club. Oh the massages and seafood buffet! Don't forget though, in the spirit of friendly competition, the MeFi Server time is in a Particular Time Zone. Or else we'll laugh at you until universal heat death. Game on.
