Fleshbot laughs at nerd-sex advice

This AskMe question wasn't good enough for MetaFilter, but it seems to have amused the folks over at Fleshbot (very NSFW). "Because whenever we want advice on sexual intimacy, the Borg-like wisdom of internet geeks is always the first place we turn."

Weirdest mention of MeFi in the press

Weirdest mention of MeFi in the press: in a press release about advice for college students by a boardgame company. They googled, got Ask MetaFilter, and printed it. I have no idea why.

Couldn't find any references to this, so here goes: Jessa Werner (another blogger fired, and discussed) is mentioned in the second half of this Thursday's Times piece on (not) blogging at work.

NYT quoting MeFi without attribution

If anyone is interested, The New York Times is quoting Metafilter without attribution. They've got a story about young employees and blogging about work, and they've lifted some of Jessa Werner's comments in the FPP about her situation. Article here (it's on the second page).

Metafilter on Wikipedia

The metafilter wikipedia article has a slight disagreement over the possible inferences between MeFi's color Blue, "Red/Blue" states, and MeFi's general left-leaning politics - what do you think?

MediaShift interviews mathowie

'I did my best to make the place as welcoming as possible, and eventually a few hundred people showed up and we had something good,' Haughey told me via email. 'Since then, I think the strong sense of community — the sense of belonging and getting something out of the participation is what drives people to contribute. There are no points or karma or awards, but I think members enjoy sharing interesting links and comments with each other and seeing their name mentioned on the site.'
Scary picture, too

New Scientist

I know that in the past, we've developed a kind of awareness that links to op-ed pieces and links to a thin AP or Reuters notice do not make for the best of the posts. To that end, I think Science posts, such as this one, have gotten an undeserved free pass. New Scientist is, well, a rag, which posts sensationalist, unsubstantiated stories with rarely any references or contexts to back them up. Or, to be more succinct: New Scientist posts suck.

Daily Show shoutout to MeFi? During last night's show, Jon Stewart punctuated a piece on 24-hour news channels with the timeless phrase "They...have cameras!" Was it a wink at this piece of MetaFilter history? The clip is here ("Baghdad Legal"), and the words are spoken at the 1:25 mark. You decide!

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...

Comment Deletion

I am not a fan of "why did you delete my comment"? posts, but, er, feel compelled to ask... Why delete the three comments in the NYT thread which linked to other online papers? Maybe they should have been more verbose, but I think the point they were making is clear - there's a whole variety of fish in that online paper sea, why get so het up about the NYT?
