About

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

Kinnakeet is an arcane place-name once used on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I began visiting the area back in the 60s when it was still empty, and few people knew anything about the area.

Followed MeFi for years before joining. Was always very impressed by the quality of the posts, the courteous and encouraging atmosphere and the intelligence and creativity of those posting. A day without Metafilter is like... a day without Metafilter!
