Mention in "Cool Tools"

Kevin Kelly does a great newsletter called Cool Tools where he normally reviews hard-to-find stuff and geek gadgets. Today he offered up a nice review of Ask MetaFilter. It's not on the site yet, so here's a screenshot from email. I thought it got to the heart of Ask MeFi pretty well, especially the part about reading it for questions you didn't know you wanted to know, but were dying to find out the answers to.

MetaFilter Quoted in the Press re: BBC "Office"

This New York Observer article uses a Metafilter thread as its sole source of "Internet" reaction to the new American version of the BBC program "The Office." Our dear mathowie is among those quoted.

The NYT has given MeFi partial credit for popularizing Pac-Mondrian.

Tired of links to the NY Times on Metafilter? Then perhaps you'll enjoy this Gray Lady link to Metafilter here on the gray. They've given MeFi partial credit for popularizing Pac-Mondrian (even though ifjuly's link only got six comments.) [via Slashdot Games.]

Always blaming the US media/government

WTF is up with the "blame the U.S. media/government" derail which occurs every time there's a disaster abroad? Why do so few seem to be bothered by it?

Metafilter is the #8 blog of the year.

"For staying above the fray, Metafilter is the #8 blog of the year." Even if do we seem a bit collectively self-loathing sometimes, somebody still loves us! Hooray!

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.

Media related metanoia

Media related metanoia - I feel that things I (and others) write and post on Metafilter seem to pop up a little too often up as stories, talking points, and as linguistic affectations of the chattering classes, on Public Radio: media succubi and incubi leeching off the juices of Metafilter and the blogoshpere at large. This has been discussed before, and will no doubt be discussed again - as at once a reality, a paranoia, and an irritant.

MetaFilter mentioned in NY Times and on NPR

Every e-mail discussion list, Web bulletin board and group blog is an example of collective intelligence at work. Do you want to know where "memes" start? Try the group blogs www.metafilter.com and boingboing.net...

From Online Diary: A Last Look at Web Destinations (NYT)

He checks in with two blogs every day -- Boing Boing and MetaFilter -- which feature content from multiple bloggers and provide links to everything from legal documents to book reviews...

TiVo industry observer mathowie

So I'm putting around in my car about a half hour ago, listening to KYW newsradio in Philly, and a "Washington bureau" correspondent starts talking about how Tivo users can now share their shows. Cool, I'm thinking, some pretty mainstream exposure for TiVo. Then the reporter cuts to "industry observer mathowie"...

Can we have a google news search for "metafilter"?

My Little Pony: In addition (or instead of) Blogroots, an RSS feed to a google news search for "metafilter" in the MetaTalk sidebar. Not all big-media shoutouts require discussion, but it's still cool to know about them: and why go through all the trouble of typing when a robot can do this for you?

Is MetaFilter still a secret?

"One day everyone will rely on Dong Resin's Joint and MetaFilter". Along with other, less interesting sources. This seems to be the gist of this recent Online Journalism Review column by Mark Glaser. And it sounds good to me. So the question is: what danger is there of what we take to be parochial and almost private actually going mainstream? Is MetaFilter still a secret? What is lost and what is gained if it suddenly goes mainstream on us?

The Homeless Guy writes about MeFi post

The Homeless Guy has listed the posting of his link at MetaFilter as the main reason for his site's ultimate take-off in popularity. It's an interesting account of the effect that a little link on MeFi can have on an individual blogger: This posting on Metafilter generated some 900 visits to my blog that day. The following day an online magazine in the UK mentioned my blog (apparently after someone read about it on Metafilter) and my site received 1200 visits. The following day brought 3200 visits. The next day, Yahoo listed my blog on its list of "New and Notable" web sites, and it received over 15,000 visits. Go, MeTa.

MeFi in NYT

MeFi gets a brief (inaccurate) mention in the Times article the (not so) secret diary of a blogger today. "Any of the 171,151 members can nominate a link, but only those voted good enough by the others make it to the front page". Still, at least the author of the piece got his own weblog as part of the research.

MetaFilter Quizzing Game Show Contestants?

Let's say a MetaFilter member is going to be on a game show in a month... a game show where one answers in the form of a question...
Would it be wrong to ask the various MetaDenizens for great links to quizzes and other sources that might help one prepare for such an undertaking?
(Just a hypothetical question here, no real reason...)

Why is MetaFilter only No.28 in the BlogShares online game?

Why is MetaFilter only No.28 in the BlogShares online game, recently written about on Rediff? What does it mean, if anything? Just how influential is MetaFilter, compared to other blogs? Is it really true that "The sphere of influence a blog is generally gauged by the blogs linking to it. That means a blog's importance grows if several other important (well-linked) bloggers link to it"?

MeFi in the Philadelphia Daily News

Yesterday's Mr. Rogers thread was cited, unkindly, I thought, by the Philadelphia Daily News in a FP story on Rogers' death.

Minutes after his death, chat began on the typically snarky Web site Metafilter.com...

I actually did not find the thread atypical at all, given the subject matter, and the subject matter was not atypical either. The writer was April Adamson -- let her know if you agree (or not).

Analysis of Laurie Garrett

Lawmeme, Yale University's excellent law blog, has published quite an amazing analysis of the Laurie Garrett discussion.
The author, James Grimmelmann (our own grimmelm), not only critiques Garrett but also has some very interesting things to say about the MeFi response. This is not your "typical" various insundry blog entry, it is more akin to the basis of a thesis. I realize this was posted in the thread, but it is definitely worth added exposure.
