Ask MetaFilter. It's a Punchline.

I DUNNO. ASK METAFILTER. A shoutout (in the company of some rather big web-names) from big-time webcomicker (and dead tree comicker), MetaFilter's Own clango.

MetaFilter on Sploid

I don't mean to "out" anybody journalistically, but having recently joined the MetaFun here "after four years of looking around", "a-list blogger" and editor of Gawker Media's Sploid* Ken Layne has made a MetaFilter Front Page Post into Sploid's big-dropshadow-headlined** lead story. Of course the story is Dunvegan's post on the Naeem Kahn affair, which I personally consider the best thing on MeFi since we stopped playing that "Blogstop" game. Yeah, let's keep making Ken's job easy... If we can get one of these for every hundred average "NewsFilters", I'll accept that tradeoff.
*which is the only Gawker site I regularly visit, sorry dong.
**actually, my favorite thing about Sploid is how they do the tabloid-ish headlines using just the Impact font and some sneaky CSS, but I digress...

"...Matt Haughey, editor of the popular blog MetaFilter."

From the article linked today in the sideblog on the Blue:
"...Matt Haughey, editor of the popular blog MetaFilter."

Editor? Then why haven't you ever fixed my typos?!?
Weird, Wired.

Its a Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt world

Finally got around to reading L.A.'s alt-paper L.A. Weekly's content-heavy "Year End Lists Issue", and was shocked at what I saw on Page 12: (fourth list down here).
That explains why Mr. Howie didn't make it to the L.A. MeetUp: He was with Drudge, Welch, Damon and Groening plotting to take over the universe...
