Best Of Metroblogging

I’ll go ahead and warn you: This is a little bit informational, and a little bit tooting my own horn.

I occasionally check out other Metroblogging cities’ sites, along with their Best Of and Active Discussions pages. Part of this is purely egotistical – I like to see if my posts have been actively discussed – but part of it is simply because the posts in those categories are usually great reading. For instance, Metblogs L.A. just completed a week-long series called L.A.’s Top 25 Legends: The Guide. Good stuff.

50 States in 10 Minutes

Since there are Metroblogs all over the U.S. (and the world, really) I thought this was a cool game: 50 States in 10 Minutes.

I got 48 states personally, forgetting our neighbor to the north, Tennessee, and Utah.

How many can you get?

Where in the World Are You?

I came across this roll call post on Metroblogging Melbourne. Melbourne author Neomien wanted to know where the Melbourne site’s readers were located: their local hood, another city in that area, or somewhere else completely.

Leaving Atlanta

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

I haven’t been posting all that frequently lately and there are good reasons why, I promise. Lots of things have been happening for me and I’ve been travelling and cauht up in all of that and blogging tends to move to the backburner pretty quickly.

Well, I’ve graduated from grad school and I’ve accepted a job in Raleigh as a senior research scientist in a really good research lab. I’m moving just after the New Year. This means two things in particular. First, I’m leaving the city of Atlanta, which I love, for the Research Triangle, which everyone tells me is great but it can’t be as wonderful as Atlanta. Second, I’m no longer going to be writing here at the Metroblog, because I’m leaving Atlanta.

I’ve been here pretty much since the beginning (well, one week after it started I joined). My first post mentioned that it was run-off election day and pointed out the beauties of Krispy Kreme. Don’t worry. I’m not going to recap my tenure here at the Metroblog. Over 400 posts is too much. I’ve enjoyed writing about this city that I love and enjoy. I hope that you have enjoyed reading what I have had to say.

Atlanta’s Seven Gifts to the World

So, if you read the site last week, you know that we participated in a Metroblog-wide event where each city posted about the Seven Gifts their city had given to the world. If you weren’t aware, you are now.

Either way, here’s a handy dandy summary post to keep you informed and arguing. Whether you like the list or hate it, we hope you’ll comment or blog about our inclusions and snubs.

Atlanta’s Second Gift to the World

Atlanta’s second gift to the world has been known to frequent a in Augusta during The Masters.

Atlanta’s Third Gift to the World

As part of the Metroblogging community’s sharing of the 7 Gifts to the World project, I present to you the Cable News Network (CNN).

Can you remember a time when you got your news only before work, at noon, and in the evening? CNN changed the way we receive news and information forever.
