A trip down MeFimory lane to Obama's 2004 convention speech

Amazed at no FPP on McCain's epic gaff

You know, I get as sick as anybody over every minor story about the U.S. presidential election getting posted to the Blue, and I know the mods are trying to keep the quality of posts up, but it [i]still[/i] surprised me to go there tonight and find NO DISCUSSION of what history could very well define as THE important turning point in this election: John McCain's not knowing how many houses he owns. This on the heels of his definition of $5 million as defining "rich". Could no one draft a decent FPP about it, or has it been decided that this story isn't going on the Blue no matter what? If so, one has to wonder: why?

Reading works just fine already, either via RSS or just a text-mode browser. Posting is a little harder. Links, Elinks, and w3m all seem baffled by the login---Elinks, for example, reloads the login page, while w3m gets back to the question but then asks me to log in again. Does anyone know why this is so? Is there some common unsupported standard that prevents these browsers from logging in? (Note: It happens with a lot of sites that need login, not just MeFi.)

How Not To Sell Out

Two months ago, Fearless Leader gave a neat talk at WebVisions 2008 about how to make money off your particular web passion without resorting to venture capital interference or selling out, and the slides and the audio (MP3) from his talk are now online. It's plenty cool enough to watch/listen to on its own merits, if you've ever dreamed of running your own web company or making a small-but-cool web tool -- but since MetaFilter (and what it's been like to start and run MetaFilter) are mentioned prominently, I thought it was worth noting here, rather than on the Blue.

It took 2+ years to find it, but it was worth it!

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 is this, 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.
