Ask Metafilter in the news

Just a few cool media mentions of Ask MetaFilter this week, neither of which were written by me or people I know.

1. NPR in their Five for Friday column says “Mom always said two heads were better than one. What would she say about thousands of heads, all with varying tidbits of knowledge — and all willing to help answer anything or everything on your mind?” I think I might like to be friends with Melody Joy Kramer.
2. The Chicago Tribune gives AskMe a nod while reporting on the demise of Google answers saying ” While Yahoo Answers is more about facts, Ask MetaFilter, in its best moments, is about feelings, opinions, theories of life. A recent, not atypical question: ‘Did you marry someone despite misgivings and have it actually work?’”

    AskMetaFilter, in its best moments, is about feelings, opinions, theories of life…

    In other words: chatfilter.

    I agree 100%. I know why you and Matt keep it the way it is, but I maintain that the true value of AskMe lies in the chatfilter aspect. Still, I can’t complain. I love it regardless! :)
