If favorites are bookmarks, and I'm not saying that they are, it would be nice to be able to search them by username. [more inside]

Today is one of the great Metafilter holidays. Happy Jessamyn Day, everyone! Especially to Jessamyn!

Facebook has an open position for a Questions Community Manager
. The text itself is pretty fascinating with superlatives like"anything you can dream up", "thousands of moderators" and "the full resources of Facebook at your disposal". I obviously thought about AskMe and Jessamyn, and she agreed it was an interesting Meta post.
Knowing that communities start from the ground up, I am especially interested in thoughts about how such a gigantic operation can be handled, if it can at all. [more inside]

Back in November of 2007 I came across jonson
about Geoff Manaugh
’s blog post
on a photographer named Shaun O’Boyle
. I really liked the photographs, and sometimes my job allows me to develop a book. So I did. Kind of about that link. I asked Geoff Manaugh to write the intro
to the book, and he said yes, and then he surprisingly cited
an unrelated Metafilter comment
in the essay he submitted. [more inside]

What were the mods like (on Metafilter) before they were mods? Please point me to notable posts by Jessamyn, Cortex, et al from when they were just some schmo on MeFi like you or me. [more inside]

We're going to be experimenting with some gentle scaling back of Metafilter's scope and services. [more inside]

Jessamyn will be in Denver tomorrow and I suggested a meetup. She would prefer something near Marriott Denver Tech Center. Any suggestions for a place?

Woo woo! Jessamyn is in the NYTimes
Jessamyn West, 38, an editor of “Revolting Librarians Redux: Radical Librarians Speak Out” a book that promotes social responsibility in librarianship, and the librarian behind the Web site librarian.net (its tagline is “putting the rarin’ back in librarian since 1999”) agreed that many new librarians are attracted to what they call the “Library 2.0” phenomenon. “It’s become a techie profession,” she said.
In a typical day, Ms. West might send instant and e-mail messages to patrons, many of who do their research online rather than in the library. She might also check Twitter, MySpace and other social networking sites, post to her various blogs and keep current through MetaFilter and RSS feeds. Some librarians also create Wikis or podcasts.

Metafilter's own, Jessamyn West, was profiled today in a local Vermont / New Hampshire paper, The Valley News
. Metafilter and Ask MetaFilter are mentioned a few times. Unfortunately, the pictures that accompanied the dead tree version don't grace the online version because there are two cute photos.

"I don't know if she's paid or volunteer, but I damned sure wouldn't want to have jessamyn's job."
Well, me neither -- I sometimes disagree with the judgement calls, but wouldn't want to be the one making them, and I don't see why anyone would volunteer for it. So is jessamyn paid?

jessamyn: Thank You. I've been an internet forum moderator for years now and I think you've been doing a kick-ass job in my professional estimation. Kudos.
