What's in your profile?

MeFites are one of the most consistently interesting groups in which I am allowed to hang out. Some MeFites write or have written books. Hook us up, wouldja? And, in general, I like to check out profiles and am always happy to find links to blogs, updated or not, music, articles, stories, whatever stuff ends up there. Please consider populating your profile. p.s. There's no fact-checking. [more inside]

Writers of MeFi Represent!

I often see AskMeFi requests for book recommendations, especially now that so many people are in Lockdown. I'm often in a bind because I think my own books would be a good fit, but it seems spammy to recommend them :) How about we create a thread here where the writers of MetaFilter can showcase our books?

Mention what kind of books we write, and put a few links in to where they can be bought or downloaded. Sound like a plan?

There is no Lacuna Cabal, kid.

Author Sean Dixon is now a Grand Poohbah of Metafilter, thanks to this post. Also, a comment in that thread from suburbanbeatnik was quoted in a Globe and Mail article about the incident.

Please help us buy your books.

So, I was reading the writer's block post, and I had a thought....is there a central repository of all of the published writers here? I'm a pretty big book buyer, and I'd happily support the authors here. [more inside]

Author Info in RSS

Missing pony: Author information in RSS feeds. According to this earlier metatalk thread, the RSS feeds should contain the name of a post's author in the appropriate field, but there are no such tags showing up in the feed. Was that pony stillborn? Can it be revived?
