MeFi24 in 2023

Today is MetaFilter’s 24th anniversary. To put things in perspective, this invaluable source of knowledge, conversations and learning was founded the same year the Euro launched, boy bands were on the rise, the first Matrix movie was released, and "Believe" by Cher was hitting the top of the Billboard Year-End chart. We'd like to celebrate this milestone by raising a virtual toast to the countless discussions, friendships, and shared knowledge that have blossomed here. [more inside]

Hey It's My 20th MeFiVersary!

Damn, I have been here a long time. I am not a terribly prolific poster or one of those people you see holding court in every single post, but I like to think of myself as one of those "Oh yeah, THAT guy" MeFites who shows up every day. It's been a shit year in a lot of ways, but I still look forward to seeing what's going on here, learn about something, have my perspective on an issue enlightened, and maybe have a laugh, just like I have done for the last two decades. Thanks to you all for being a big part of my life.

Looking back on ten years of FPPs

I've joined many web communities in my life, but none for as long or as wholeheartedly as MetaFilter. I've learned a lot, grown as a person, and taken direction from the thousands of smart, funny, and caring people who write here. And I've been inspired to write, too, putting more time and effort into researching worthwhile posts than I have at any other creative hobby. Sadly, what with work and the news chaos and competing interests it feels like there's less and less time to focus lately, and seeing linkrot erode what I do post is a drag. So when showbiz_liz's lovely celebration of ten years on the blue made me realize my own 10th Mefiversary was approaching, I was moved to do something about it. Nothing on the web lasts forever, but armed with old notes files, the Wayback Machine, and a drive to rediscover my own personal Best of the Web, I plowed through all 149 posts (and a few comments) to recover lost links, check on what had happened since, and organize it all into a single FPP omnibus for your reading pleasure.

Happy Mefi-day to me!

Today just happens to be my one-year Mefi-versary! In honor of this, I thought it might be fun for some of you old timers* to tell me about your favorite thread, post, question or project. MeTa tends to be kinda stuffy -- let's let the light in here and have a little fun, neh? [more inside]
