Followup FPPs?

A couple of times this week I've run across links that had significant new information on stories that made the Blue recently enough to still be active. By themselves they don't feel meaty enough to merit a new FPP, but if I just tack them at the end of the old FPP it feels like wasted effort that nobody's likely to see. [more inside]

Past Meetups Follow-up Thread Links

Can we add a feature in the Past Meetups page that also links to the follow-up on meetups (e.g. the threads that contain pictures and how a good time was had by all)?

Follow up to "Vienna phonebook thread"

FYI: Remember the "Vienna phonebook thread"? The archival collection we used to find all that information is (finally) being opened to the public with a presentation tomorrow afternoon here at the Holocaust Museum in Washington.

Craig Thomas (R-WY) to serve as Zombie Senator

Though his death was noted yesterday in the blue, the last paragraph of today's NYT obituary suggests that his role as Senator may not be over: "When Senator Johnson fell ill last year, there was speculation that the Democrats could lose the two-vote margin by which they had just won control of the Senate a month earlier. But he is preparing to return to the Senate soon."

Follow up on Duclod posts.

The mystery of the duclod man is solved. Related to this post from March and this post from 2001. I think Sarah Aswell did a better job of unraveling his truth than the googling masses of metafilter.

Remember that deadline Patrick Leahy set at Alberto's hearing? Well, Gonzo apparently missed it. Leahy responds with a letter, subpoena included. (direct link to pdf) A follow-up to this post.

The death of Protoman?

Simple Twist of Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate

So, as the guy who posted Dylan Hears a Who, I'm uniquely shamefaced to have failed to download the mp3 files before the Geisel estate pulled the plug. Does anyone know of a working mirror, or, failing that, could anyone contact the address in my profile to... um... discuss this further?

Remember this popular post about the debunking of Noka chocolates? The New York Times has a follow up to the DallasFood.org article. It mentions boingboing, chowhound, and slashdot, but not metafilter.

Etiquette: is it OK to MeTa an open, updated AskMe?

Is it bad form to make a MeTa post that draws attention to a still open AskMe question I made a few weeks back that still remains unresolved and for which I now have new data that could help in it's resolution? Or do I need to bite the proverbial bullet and ask an entirely new question on the AskMe front page with a link back to the old question? I'll admit, I'm reluctant to do the latter because I'll now have to wait 2 weeks before I can ask another question, but I also want to see my question resolved. What's the consensus here?

United flight 735 incident

Patrick Smith, of Salon's "Ask the pilot" discusses the United flight 735 incident discussed in this rather contentious thread. (I didn't think was worth a FPP, but it might be interesting to some people.)

A gmail account for anonymous askme followups

I created a gmail account for anonymous askme followups. The username is anon.metafilter and the password is metafilter. Anymore can post there. Just log in at gmail.google.com and send email from that account TO that account (anon.metafilter@gmail.com).

Since gmail allows tags, you can tag your messages. You can also reply to them (or other users can reply to them) and gmail will automatically keep all the replies together.

Why hasn't someone already done this? Is it a bad idea? (No one will be forced to use it). If it's a bad idea, why is it a bad idea? Of course, it could (perhaps will) get utterly chaotic with people deleting each others posts, etc.

Lets see what happens.

AskMe Followups

Often having read an AskMe thread I wonder later how it all turned out. Did the raccoon make it? Did she freak out about all your new books? Did the tramadol screw you? How'd the ginger martini go down? Those are recent threads, still open for comments, so adamkempa could easily let us know as to whether he found the pez shirt, but that doesn't work for learning how effective were scarabic's body disposal guidelines. Or if anonymous is in deep trouble, or is it not so bad.

At least let me know whether deafmute has managed to get away from the dog yet.

nice followup

A new Slate article is a nice followup to a previous MeTa discussion. It deals so directly with the substance of mine and amberglow's conversation (and others, of course), that it's a little disconcerting. I remain skeptical of the "media lifts story ideas from MeFi", but you have to wonder.

unicom followup

A while ago, chipr's fight to save his domain -- Unicom.com -- was linked to on the sidebar. Slashdot is now reporting that the judge on his case has decided in his favor. (Congrats, chip!)
