I listened to it last night and thought it was pretty dang good.

Cortex comes in around the 20:00 minute mark, but there's some interesting discussion before that point...

I listened to it yesterday afternoon, he done us proud.

Is Cortex cheating on us?

Yeah, it was a good time. I still love that Jeff responded to my "man, this seems fiddly and I have Considerable Doubts about their reputation system" with "hey, awesome thread, come on the show!" Definitely good sports.

And I'm cracking out on SO for the last couple of days. Interesting open questions aside (and there are a lot, though it was nice to see how much of that is very much on Jeff and Joel's minds), it is indeed working the gamer instincts in me fairly well.

He sounds a lot less donut-y than I'd imagined.

I feel that I both have to and never can change my profile photo.

I don't think I mentioned Paul either, during the show. In my defense, [insert plausible defense here]. I shouted 'em both out in the comments on Jeff's podcast blog post.

Also, the intro announcer guy called me "MILL-erd". I should put a pronunciation key up on my profile. On the bright side, nobody got to contradict my pronunciation of mefi, so that was a win.

Plausible defense is plausible.

mih-LARD. Adopted as a stagename by German Jews a few generations back because nobody wants to see, like, The Amazing Meinzes. If I remember the family history right.

Can we see some "first askme post" email that made you spit-take? I think it's awesome that such a system's in place.

> The Amazing Meinzes

Well, if that isn't a great side project band to perform barmitsvah rock, I don't know what is.

Just for today is it Mill-arrrrrd?

Secretly, he wants it to be pronounced "my Lord".

Praise the (Mil)lard!

For some reason it was vastly amusing to me that neither Jeff or Joel really seemed to get the deliberate (relative) smallness of Metafilter and the self promotion ban around these parts. (good chaps and all, just a bit engineery)

Yeah, I actually had a kind of nuanced argument I wanted to make about vectors of success in social vs. utile vs. scale vs. traffic contexts, but the conversation was very sort of naturally tangenty and that among other things got left by the wayside. I'm not sure it would have been interesting to listen to, but I could have talked with them for another hour easily.
