MetaKnittingCircle?

A while back I jokingly said something about how we should have a Metafilter Zoom knitting group, and a couple of people MeMailed me to express interest in actually doing it. Should we? It doesn't have to be limited to knitting: it could be a general hang-out-on-Zoom (or some other platform) while-doing-your-small-craft-project group. [more inside]

Supreme Court hearings?

Do we not have a thread about the confirmation hearings of Amy Barrett (OfJesse to her friends)? Has nobody done one, or have they all been deleted, or is my ability to search the site significantly impaired by the painkillers?

Site Update #6, 2020

Hey everyone! It's been a wild couple of weeks in the world, but fortunately not quite as wild here in Metafilter HQ. We're celebrating a successful Fundraising Month, chugging forward with a bunch of long-term projects, and beginning to plot some fun stuff for later in the year. [more inside]

Proposal: MetaTalk(s)

I have learned a ton from the community here -- from pure knowledge stuff like how airplanes or viruses or financial systems work, to lived experience stuff like what some aspects of life are like for disabled folks, how to better spot my biases, how to be a better ally. These are just a very small sampling of the immense quantity of stuff I have learned from you all.

The thing is, a lot of that learning has been diffused over 18 years of being here. And a lot of the knowledge transfer has been implicit, from just participating and being exposed to social norms of which I was previously ignorant. This makes the huge gains I have enjoyed less accessible to a new user. I think it would be neat to be able to watch / listen to a talk from a MetaFilter member who is a subject matter expert on topic [X]. A Metafilter Member Seminar Series, of sorts. [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: How Is It Still Around?

Happy Weekend, MetaFilter! This week, riverlife chimes in with an amazing suggestion spurred by last week's things from the past that have disappeared -- things from the past that are SOMEHOW still around! Or as riverlife put it, "How Has This Thing from the Past Remained a Thing in the Present??? How Has This Managed to Hang On???" They suggest baseball and AM radio to kick things off! [more inside]
