Holy shit has it really been 20 years

I don't have anything really insightful to say here, other than I am reeling from the time passed, from the resources wasted, from the lives lost. A New Yorker, who was downtown that day, who says that she wants to send hugs to everybody on this awful anniversary.

On Sept. 11, 2001, there was no Facebook, no Twitter, not even a MySpace

…but there was a MetaFilter. Will Oremus gave us a shout-out five days ago in a short blog post for Slate.

One Dozen Years Later

9/11 was twelve years ago. Metafilter hosted amazing collaborative citizen journalism of the event as it happened.

9/11 Live thread?

Where's the Sept 11, 2001 live thread? MeFiFu failing me. It remains probably the best thing on the web about the event.

If we let this go past the fifth anniversary, it'll never go away.

Let's not this year. [more inside]

September 11th Thread

Thought you guys might be interested to know I just taught Sept 11 to my american history class by reading the first 60 or so comments from this thread. It was a near perfect capturing of that day for those too young to really understand what was going on

9/11 remembered, one year later

I would just like to tell Miguel (and the MetaFilter community): Well. Done.

"A New Book Scratches At A Weblog Wound" (NYT)

(NYT) A New Book Scratches At A Weblog Wound
Should Bookblog, a project to collect 9/11-related blog entries (e.g. opinion on WoT events, not day-of reactions), exclude those veteran webloggers. Jason Kottke and others say no. I suppose I could have read a response on the Op-Ed page, but Ariel Sharon sent one in that week too. More here

Metafilter in Yahoo Internet Life November 2001.

Don't know if it's been mentioned - Metafilter shows up a few times in the November edition of Yahoo Internet Life, including a six-comment snip of the original 9/11 post.

Is it getting nastier and more bloodthirsty here? (Apres 911)

This might be a bad thread, or it might not. Apologies if so. I really can't tell, so I'll just get it off my chest. Now that the bombs are dropping, and violence is in the air again, does it seem to anyone else that the tenor has also gone a little nasty and bloodthirsty on MeFi? (more)

Should I post another WTC memorial site?

how should I handle this? a user has written asking that I post another WTC memorial site to the top page. (more inside)

Too much WTC.

If you don't contribute front-page links, you probably haven't seen the post a link page where Matt pleads with users to show some restraint with WTC links. Should he put it in a bigger font?

Reactions to 9-11

Wow. We're pissed, and sad. And for some, things have switched from Conservative-Liberal to something else entirely. But I think arguing and discussing all this on Mefi is a lot better than having this crap eat us alive from inside.

Post Sept 11: Smaller text for more posts

Matt -- thanks for your work over the past few days -- will you indulge a suggestion? If the front page is being rendered manually, could the text be smaller, as in the same size as this text here (10pt is it?). With so many threads appearing every few moments it may make the front page more readable and the difference between discussion, news, solace and troll threads more apparent.

How do you define trolling in the present atmosphere?

How do you define trolling in the present atmosphere? At the moment anyone who suggests that america has performed atrocities is flamed.

Dealing with Crisis

Should anything be done about this thread, with all the inflammatory language and anonymous posting (which, IMO, does absolutely nothing positive or constructive for anybody)?

mad propz

I would just like to offer mad propz to The Haughey for keeping the site up and running today. Where Microsoft failed, a lone hobbyist working for free came through.
