I link to this not only because (unknown to me before now!) Colin Marshall’s Ask MetaFilter thread is one of my favorites ever but also because Matt Haughey is one of my topmost internet heroes. And it’s just a great interview, drifting across many subjects with an introspective long view.
The quote above describes MetaFilter quite well, however if you do anything *near* online communities, Matt Haughey’s experience and perspective is invaluable.
At least stay for the obligatory “Portlandia” jokes.
