MetaFilter has long had a well-deserved reputation as one of the better things on the Internet, a "community weblog" where the community has a staggeringly broad range of interests and includes almost no trolls, which itself is kind of staggering as well. Here is an excellent example of the quality of the site's posts: a YouTube-assisted explanation of so-called "garage" dance music—it's different from garage rock—and its evolution from Larry Levan's disco-era remixes through deep house and 2-step all the way to dubstep, which is arguably the most interesting electronic music style of the moment and which I blame for the blown-outness of one of my woofers.
