Metababy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Metababy was a wiki created and coded by Greg Knauss and designed by Leslie Harpold, that allowed raw HTML, JavaScript and CSS in its pages. The wiki ran from November 1998[1] to May 2003.[2]

Metababy would display the contents of every email sent to the address metababy@metababy.com.

It was nominated for a Webby Award in 2000.[3]

The wiki died out due to the increasing number of spam and offensive posts.[4] It was later resurrected, but was then shut down again. Since its shutdown, the site displays the static text "I think we could all probably use a rest."
