Wherefore Aren't Thou, Balcony?

Nice discussion in eotvos's post on the (un?)balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet, with an especially interesting comment from ricochet biscuit on one Thomas Coryate, "probably the most influential person on your daily life that you have never heard of but who is still known by name" — and a man who would almost certainly understand the dread perils of modern day Twitter (et al).

Fruits of Firstpost September

We've wrapped up FirstPost September! A big thank you to julen for organizing and to all the posters who took part.

Great stuff to give a second look under these tags:

FirstPost (from building a medieval LEGO village, to visiting the last audio cassette factory, to this farewell from the bad boy of Canadian dance)

FirstTimeLongTime (did you see the fake Shakespeare play? You can visit Horace Rumpole to see it in person!)

SecondPost (such as Strunk and White, Grammar Police), and even ThirdPost (how about a bot that makes villanelles from tweets).

Highlighting the best bits from the MetaFilter universe

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.
