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.

Every so often I see questions about how we should treat spoilers for ongoing TV shows like Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, etc. What I don't see is any posts actually dedicated to those things. Where are we discussing current TV that spoilers are an issue?

MetaFilter gets a mention in M Magazine (the magazine that comes with The Age in Melbourne). Slightly odd reference, not an internet sort of article. [more inside]

Why is MeFi not part of the social news site boom? Digg, reddit, newsvine, and others are the lucrative hot trend
, but MeFi seems to do the same thing better (no Ron Paul spam), smarter, and for longer, and we even have favorites, for those who want voting-like capabilities. So why is MeFi not included with these young whippersnappers? And why are they not learning from MeFi's evolved model of light moderation, talk pages, and strong self-policing?
