"Simply learning from disciplines like urban planning, zoning regulations, crowd control, effective and humane policing, and the simple practices it takes to stage an effective public event, we can come up with a set of principles to prevent the overwhelming majority of the worst behaviors on the Internet."
Examples? Why Metafilter
, of course, (as well as Stack Exchange sites, of which he is a board member). [more inside]

"If your article was well written, and/or funny, I’d simply have had a laugh about it and went back to metafilter.com where I belong when I’m on the net when it was forwarded to me." A shoutout by new Cub... Metafilter's own.... Fernando Perez

I'd probably want to sweep this booger-string of a deleted thread
under the rug too if it was my site. But it's sort of sad to lose such a gold star collection of mefi members practicing the non-bigotry they preach, so if anyone lost a comment they're particularly proud of the deleting mod pretty much invited you to re-post it to the open thread here

A follow up to this little post
I made a few years ago about a fellow that was attempting to walk every street and lane of his surroundings. His passing
has given me pause to reflect on the idea of community and how posting events from the local to the global bring us closer together. I want to say thank you to mathowie for providing us with this forum for sharing these often unheard stories.

I found what I was looking for, after 2+ years, including an answer to my very first AskMe post! For posterity, the answer to this question
, and the answer to this question
is "Happy Go Lively" which is available here
I'd love to be able to update my own askme posts, even if they were from years ago. I understand that the discussion has to end at some point, but if I found what I believe to be the definitive answer (since it was my question, after all), it would help those who come searching later on to keep the answer and the question together.

Lest anyone miss it on the blue, this post
needs to be added to the list of those that are referred to whenever someone asks what an excellent FPP looks like.

: "Stephen and I traveled to Bilin, near Ramallah, on Friday. [...] IDF soldiers began firing CS gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets at the marchers [...] here's a video of me running away when the soldiers started firing gas canisters [...] I had my jump kit with me and tried to help a few people [...]" He's writing a pretty fascinating blog.
