Finnish Beer Float via kaljakellunta.orgFinnish Beer Float via kaljakellunta.org

Recently on Mefi, people and places around the world, enchanting, mysterious and magnetic:

"Who Killed Captain Alex: Uganda's First Action Movie" was produced, written, directed, shot, and edited by Nabwana IGG from his home in Wakaliga, Uganda for under $200, using real blood and a modified car jack for a tripod

In Cesena, Italy, a year long-project of getting one thousand musicians to play Foo Fighter's "Learn To Fly," in an effort to convince the band to do a show in their town

The annual beer float in Helsinki, Finland just kind of happens (note to self: poss Mefi competitive sport idea?)

Let's get this #WomensMarch started

Today we're kicking off #WomensMarch, the twice-makes-it-a-tradition followup to last year's excellent #JulyByWomen project. It's a month long project to encourage women in the Metafilter community to feel comfortable posting more often, or even for the first time, and if you'd like to participate, it's easy: just put together a post, and tag it with "WomensMarch" and "MonthByWomen".

And if you're a little nervous or just don't know where to start, don't worry: a bunch of generous folks have spoken up in the Metatalk thread to offer mentoring, collaboration, post ideas, and just general support for whoever wants it.

Last year's #JulyByWomen was a really positive, and really successful, community-organized initiative, and led to a huge variety of interesting posts and lots of first-time and haven't-in-a-while posters (and even some brand new members!) getting involved. We're happy it went so well, and we're excited to return to the idea this month and make #MonthByWomen a part of the Metafilter community tradition.

MetaFilter started as a community weblog in 1999, later added question and answers, then music by members, jobs, projects by members, a podcast, and finally an area dedicated to meetups.
