MetaFilter as social experiment hoax by mathowie March 19, 2004 5:33 PM   Subscribe

Does anybody know where that fake page that mathowie put up a few years ago when MeFi was down is hiding? This is the one where he claims that Metafilter was a social experiment in AI and that the vast majority of the writers here were simply software constructs. This was right after he got on the cover of some magazine, and said it was just some actor..... Thanks.

Is there a directory listing somewhere that shows all of the various mefi pages, not including, of course, the threads and user pages?

And next time you zoom through the Everglades, please listen more closely than usual to my whistling nipples.

Our examination of the various current attempts to create Glass Bead Games on the Internet has revealed that the general GBG community (several well informed scholars excluded) is relatively unaware of the essential connections between the GBG and the Esoteric Tradition.

clavdivs, with a name like "Purucker", the Esoteric Tradition has to taste good!

And, Miguel, thanks a lot. Now I can't get the sound of your whistling nipples out of my mind.

Never knew about that...very cool. Sounds like a good case study in epistomology.
