How did you find MetaFilter?

Frankly, I don't remember if I found MetaFilter or it found me. But I immediately noticed the Goldilocks level of social stuff (which I am horrible at) and the surprisingly high signal to noise ratio. It has been my web home ever since...

Secondly, Horace Rumpole trotted over to the Harvard Widener Library, found the single copy that had never been checked out and posted a Flickr set to the delight of all. And that, in a thimble, is MetaFilter for me...
