Our Lady of Paris (Notre Dame) is in flames, the spire and roof have fallen, the news images are heart-breaking. I come to MeFi to learn more and to share this terrible moment and mourn with my community. Posts are deleted. [more inside]
My wonderful secret quonsar last year was Parisian. I am thinking of him and his family right now. I'm sure there are other Mefites thinking of each other right now as well. Thread to connect and check in. [more inside]
Allow me to show my gratitude in form of alcohol: Parisian Mefites! I wanna drink at you. Lets say this Monday (11th) after work? [more inside]

Anyone interested in a MeFi meet-up in Paris on Friday, May 2nd or Saturday, May 3rd? I think, other than myself, nasreddin can be forced to participate...
UpdateFilter: while I was waiting in line for an iPhone with my friend yesterday (for him not for me) I was catching up on a little work. I was showing my friend the MeFi admin interface and someone looked over my shoulder and said "is that MetaFilter?" I said yes, was he a member? He said no but a video that he had made got linked on MeFi last February and had catapulted him to mini-stardom for a few weeks. He gave me some backstory on the movie....
How about a Paris meetup? Say, some time between May 21 and June 2 so I can attend?
Myself and absalom are in Paris this week. Do any other Mefites want to meetup for Saint Patty's day (friday)?
Forget Williamsburg--How about a Paris meetup? Anytime between 5/11/05 and 12/11/05. (note the fancy Euro datesmanship?)
Getting quite fed-up of Postroad's racism. I take it it's not an acceptable form of speech to characterise a whole nation as violent as it's most anti-social elements?
There will be a Francophone weblogger get-together to discuss ways of promoting French-language weblogs in Paris November 22. On va avoir un dîner pour débattre des opportunités de promotion des weblogs francophones, le 22 novembre. FAQ. [Also, there's a discussion, in French, of the proper terminology for weblogs and webloggers. On the table is "webillard" for weblog and "joueb" for blog, a distinction not really made in English.]
Just a quick reminder: the weblog community (and Metafilter folks in particular) are invited for a beer in Paris: Sunday, April 8, 2001, 7 p.m. Café Oz, 18 rue St Denis, 75001, Paris, France. Metro stop Chatelet or Les Halles on the 1, 4, 7, 11 or 14 lines and on the A, B and D RER lines. On Spring break in Europe? Live in France? Stand-by voucher burning a hole in your pocket? Drop by!
