Having just mailed my cards for Project G.I.V.E. M.E. (that is, Great Internet Valentine Exchange, Metafilter Edition), and having had at least as much fun as I did with the winter holiday cards, I'm wondering if there's enough momentum and interest for another project. [more inside]
It would be a complement to Jobs and Projects - a place for Mefites to post ideas that they, personally, are not going to use, and thus make them freely available for other creative and talented Mefites to run with. [more inside]
Metafilter's Favorite Things Show!!! You get a pony and You get a pony and YOU GET A PONY!!! *eeeee*
What was the last, or best thing you bought, made, or put money into as a result of Metafilter? [more inside]
Question about MeFi Projects - Is it acceptable to post an idea for a project in the hopes that others will be interested and want to help out? Or is MeProj just for projects that are already in progress?
I just had an idea, it's just an idea, let me know if I'm nuts or this has any merit. Let's say around June 1, when the US presidental campaign gets into its full stride, I setup two sub-metafilter sites, one at BushIn2004.metafilter.com, the other at KerryIn2004.metafilter.com for fans of either to blow off their steam and keep MeFi proper largely free of the campaign-squabble-of-the-day posts we're likely to see? (yeah, and I'm curious how a bush supporter blog would go over too)
So today on the train into work, I came up with an idea. Thoughts? Feedback? Would you write for such a thing if asked?
