Oh hey I signed up because I saw the mention here! MetaFilter is a big forum sort of like this one but it's in blog format. It's been around since 1999 and I used to work there from 2005 til 2014. It's full of old school web people, usually, sharing interesting stuff they've found on the web. As you can see, some of the people can be grouchy internet people.
Some of the discussion there, especially lately, is political but there's also just tracking down neat interesting stuff on the internet, a place we all love, and talking about it.
We've also got a Q&A forum part of the site and there's a question there based on a photo of a road sign I took on my trip which folks here might enjoy
I found USEnds because I was looking for information on Route 20 and I think I found the link from here when I was googling. My sister and I are working on a slow motion road trip to drive the length of (current) Route 20, in stages. This month we drove from Boston MA (where the END sign is missing
!) to Dyersville IA and then back along more conventional highways. It was really fun. I'm not a road nerd as much as a small town nerd and a library nerd, so it was great to see a lot of random town centers and small town libraries. And, of course, road signs.
When I'm not going on road trips I'm also a small town librarian and technology educator who has given talks about Web 2.0
. It's usually meant to refer to sites that have some sort of interactive option, social aspect, or other thing that allows users to collaborate and not just read. Dynamic in some way. It's a sort of made up word and I think the MeFite comment was meant to say "Hey this site just has static content, but it's still useful and relevant" As someone who really appreciates the old web as well as the new web, I love coming across sites like USEnds (and discussion forums like this one) and just wanted to say hello and thanks.
