See MetaFilter.

From the MetaFilter website (http://www.metafilter.com/about.mefi):
Metafilter is a weblog (what's a weblog? | comprehensive history of weblogs) that anyone can contribute a link or a comment to. A typical weblog is one person posting their thoughts on the unique things they find on the web. This website exists to break down the barriers between people, to extend a weblog beyond just one person, and to foster discussion among its members.

And from http://creativecommons.org/learn/aboutus/people#14:
Matthew Haughey, Creative Director Equal parts designer and programmer, Matt has been building web interfaces and applications for the past eight years. He runs the popular community site MetaFilter, writes daily on his weblog, takes daily photos, and keeps track of it all on his personal site. His previous work includes projects involving universities, non-profit groups, startups, and media companies and his work has appeared in numerous major media outlets. He has helped author three books on the subjects of usability, web design, and weblogs. He is increasingly frustrated with the continued assault on personal and consumer rights in the worlds of radio, television, film, and software.
