If this is old ground then here is a rather interesting (if obvious) way of reading MetaFilter's history. (Start from the bottom up, as they say.) I found it especially entertaining reading during those times that Matt got pissed off. Kudos to Mr. Haughey for keeping his pecker up.
Curious George - I just enjoyed a great link by homunculus and I am very happy that Gyan (the music man) and languagehat are here to share their perspectives and fun links with us. I seem to remember seeing other MeFites posting here. How many other Metafilter members eventually signed up here when we were remarked upon over at that other site? Are there any others willing to "come out"?
