MeFites in Texas, Ecuador, and Japan

Nature is being a real mother right now in Houston, Ecuador, and Japan. Just wanted to put out a quick note hoping that Mefites and their loved ones in these different regions are all doing well and staying safe, and to invite folks to drop lines if they are struggling.

Earthquake!

5.8 earthquake on the east coast, everyone okay? The whole building was shaking here (a few miles from the epicenter).

60: Quakes and QWOP

Our 60th podcast starts off with some amazing calls from MeFites in Japan. It ends on a slightly heavy note and we didn't have the calls recorded before we recorded our podcast, so you'll have to excuse the mods for not commenting on the calls (because they were an unknown at the time) and generally being jokey just after some Heavy Shit. Anyhoo, this contains recaps from SXSW and the best parts of the site during the month of March. It runs 1hr 15min long or so [more inside]

MeFi podcast: we'd like to hear from members in Japan

MeFites in Japan, we want to hear from you on the next podcast! After the devastating earthquake just a couple weeks ago, we've all worried about our members in Japan and it was great to see check-ins that things were mostly ok. We'd like to hear from mefites in Japan for the next podcast: call my new Skype Japanese number at (050) 5806-3941 and leave us up to a 90 second message letting everyone know what the quake was like, what the aftermath was like, and how the rebuilding it going. I know 90sec is short, so if you'd like to leave a longer story/message, you can always record a mp3 at home and just send us a link to download it on the contact form. Thanks! [more inside]

Translation of the French article about MeFi linked on the sideblog

Re: The article in French, linked on the sideblog.

Don't take this as a perfect translation, I've only had 4 years of French (in an american public school, no less), but here's the first paragraph of that article.

Last February 28th, the earth rumbled in Seattle, USA. Even before an urgent dispatch came across the news wire services, a net surfer wrote on the american website Metafilter: "I'm sitting at work in the Real Networks building. We have just experienced close to a minute of jostling and shaking. There is now a six foot crack on the wall of my office. Looking around, nothing appears to have fallen over, but there are crowds of people on the sidewalks." This web surfer relayed the news, like every day on Metafilter, one of the most significant american "Web logs".
