On the eve of MetaFilter's twelfth birthday, the Willamette Week sits down with Matt Haughey
to talk about his roots at the dawn of the blogging age, the value of lifestyle work vs. captaining industry, and the future of community blogs in an online landscape increasingly dominated by Twitter, Facebook, and mobile browsing.

While reading the paper this morning I found this article
featuring MeFite #1 decrying the culture of snark. (This is not actually the newspaper I read it in, but it is the only registration-free online version I saw.)

Thought some folks might like to see a presentation
Matthew posted up on the most excellent slideshare site about building online communities. Fantastic selection of photos in the presentation...nicely done.
(No, I'm not a crazy stalker person - I was checking slideshare out for some dull compsci reading, and
Mathowie's head popped up
this was a featured presentation. Enjoy!

It seems our
fearless leader has a little New York Times thing going on in tommorow's paper
Unless there's another Matthew Haughey who writes tech stuff.

Deep down, the internet is about people. Sure it's an interconnected set of computers following simple machine instructions, but the driving force behind it all is people connecting with other people. The human network is good way to describe what the internet has become. It is ingrained in our everyday lives. We email coworkers, friends, and loved ones. Our lives are captured by digital cameras and shared online. We read blogs for their personalities and unique take on the world. Even dry data like bank balances and weather forecasts have become ways to accentuate and improve your daily life.

'I did my best to make the place as welcoming as possible, and eventually a few hundred people showed up and we had something good,' Haughey told me via email. 'Since then, I think the strong sense of community — the sense of belonging and getting something out of the participation is what drives people to contribute. There are no points or karma or awards, but I think members enjoy sharing interesting links and comments with each other and seeing their name mentioned on the site.'Scary picture, too

New York Observer
article uses a Metafilter thread
as its sole source of "Internet" reaction to the new American version of the BBC program "The Office." Our dear mathowie is among those quoted.

So I'm putting around in my car about a half hour ago, listening to KYW newsradio in Philly, and a "Washington bureau" correspondent starts talking about how Tivo users can now share their shows. Cool, I'm thinking, some pretty mainstream exposure for TiVo. Then the reporter cuts to "industry observer mathowie

Finally got around to reading L.A.'s alt-paper L.A. Weekly's content-heavy "Year End Lists Issue", and was shocked at what I saw on Page 12: (fourth list down here
That explains why Mr. Howie didn't make it to the L.A. MeetUp: He was with Drudge, Welch, Damon and Groening plotting to take over the universe...

For Newbies(and the odd Oldie too): Here's some good and timely advice from Derek Powasek's Conversation with Matt Haughey
, back when MetaFilter only had 2000+ members. It's probably been posted before, but will be new to many of us late-comers.. In fact, it should be read along with the guidelines, IMO(it certainly chastised me...). A good chaser is a link from the About page here at MeFi, where you get Powazek discussing Metafilter
Food for thought, to say the least: how important are
original and innovative links? Very.

Rock-star Matt Haughey
is in the news again (with gratuitous photo). This time, in a New York Times article on the Amazon honor system (penned by Ironminds' Andy Wang).
