Happy birthday to the guy who probably worries more than most about keeping the lights on in this sometimes only bright corner of the internets!
Not only is he the chief cook and bottle washer around here, he’s also a: Taurus, musician and amazing stained glass artisan, as well as possessing other artistic talents! Happy natal return day to our own Renaissance man, cortex!
After 16 years of doing a bit of everything under the sun here, I’m stepping away from the day to day of running MetaFilter and moving into the background. Never fear, I’m leaving it in the best of hands and things are looking good for the future. [more inside]
I can't believe no one has said anything to our "datawranglin' mod" until now, but many happy returns!
What were the mods like (on Metafilter) before they were mods? Please point me to notable posts by Jessamyn, Cortex, et al from when they were just some schmo on MeFi like you or me. [more inside]
