I'm amazed I've not heard of this meta Filter before. Anyone else heard of it?

MetaFilter has been around since 2000 or so. All sorts of interesting stuff percolates up on its front page.

MeFi is:

Less techy than Slashdot.
Less fratboy than Fark.
More adult than Digg.
Less newsy than Plastic.
More open than BoingBoing.
Less open than your own blog.
More left wing than DailyKos.
Less smug than CrookedTimber.
Higher signal:noise than Usenet.

John Scalzi, Cory Doctorow, and Charlie Stross are members, among others.

The internet's is an even bigger world than I imagined!
I just mainly come here to NS - and to TTA. Meanwhile I'm busy filling my blogs with new novels! :-)
