“I mean, old school web people definitely have opinions...”

From the Initiative for Digital Public Infrastructure at UMass Amherst: “MetaFilter turns 25 this month, a shining beacon of the Good Web. Reluctant owner Jessamyn West tells us how rusty tech and vibrant community keeps it vital.” [Elsewhere: MetaFilter: a time capsule from another internet]

MetaTalkTales - looking past the solstice

This year's June Solstice came earlier than it has for 228 years, falling at 20:51 on 20 June UTC. The solstice is considered a time to pause, reflect and celebrate (for those in the Southern Hemisphere) the return of the sun. What are you reflecting on and hoping for over the time between solstices? For some, it's going to be a period of political turbulence, but let's put aside politics (hard, but I know you can do it!) for a change and reflect on the rest of our lives for a bit.

MeFi mod travelingthyme needs help

If you've noticed that moderator travelingthyme has not posted here recently, it's for a grave reason: while on a cross-country move, they were involved in a horrible accident that totaled their car, destroyed nearly all of their personal possessions, and tragically cost the life of their father. Now their friend has organized a GoFundMe to help cover medical bills, funeral arrangements, and replacement of everything from lost family keepsakes to household essentials (if you're in the Boston area, contact the organizer to donate items directly!). If you've found any value in this community in the last few years, travelingthyme is part of the reason why it's able to work -- please give what you can to help them recover from this terrible loss.
