If you feel up to it, please take a photo of something nice (anything that makes you feel good) and share it with all of us. It can be something on your desk.

To people who have done this; why did you create Front Page Post(s) on MetaFilter? The motivations are interesting in themselves, and may also provide positive reasons for people to cross the rubicon from lurker to poster. [more inside]
Check out the small new twitter/facebook share links on this thread (only enabled there as a test) and let us know what you think [more inside]
Yesterday, Amazon enabled lending for e-books in Kindle format, albeit with a whole lot of caveats, restrictions, limitations and rampant publisher opt-outs. But hey, books. Any interest in setting up a lending library for Mefites? And if so how the hell would we do that? [more inside]
