MetaFilter's choice contest week 1 results

Most every December, MetaFilter throws a best post contest and this year is no different: The MeFites Choice Awards.

Week one has passed and the winners have been announced. Here are the top three posts to MetaFilter according to voting members of the site.

Where My Ladies At? is a post about sexism among scientists that includes this brilliant video response as well as a huge list of female STEM online educators. It was posted by Blasdelb.

A Star Trek video of Picard's crew singing "let it snow" by Gelatin came in second.

And last but not least, the man of twists and turns made a comprehensive post on the state of conspiracy theory culture in America, looking back over 50 years.

We'll continue to post weekly recaps of the winners throughout this month.
