Well, I just gotta say that in spite of my previous gripe about libelous troll karma, Slashdot is way, way better than most any scalable portal / social network / news and data exaggerator. I realized this as I was slamming AOL and Corporate America's greed and short sightedness, when it occurred to that at least Slashdot keeps it's eye on the ball and continues to deliver real value to the world.

I realized this as I was slamming AOL and Corporate America's greed and short sightedness, when it occurred to that at least Slashdot keeps it's eye on the ball and continues to deliver real value to the world. A consistency of value and function, while resisting the kind of decay and degradation one can expect once that "upstart" is sold to big business. But Sourceforge isn't AOL or HP. I'm glad that informed perspectives found in top usenet newsgroups or college classrooms are distilled here with the daily news feed. This bloggy convention seems to work for me here, and at Flickr (also acquired by big corporate brother). If its any consolation, I don't pay to subscribe at either place. But the way I figure it, you guys definitely get value from me. I am generally so committed to free stuff that I'll spend the currency of my quality time, instead of fast bucks. It won't pay the bills, but at least it celebrates Slashdot's collaborative process and growth.
