Krow Dead at 2

I just heard some sad news on talk radio - Slash Team icon Brian Aker's job at OSDN was found dead in the noncompetitive OSDN payroll ledger this morning. I'm sure trolls and /bots alike will miss him - even if you've been freaked by everyone, there's no denying that krow was the Slashcode contributor that didn't suck. Truly a Slashdot icon.

He will be missed.

I love the text ads from google syndication above your journal.

Perhaps whoever runs the ads has a sense of humor?

To save $$ I look at ads only on Stories, not Front Page or Comments. Ergo they appear on journals.

They are google smart ads (or whatever they call them). Google's ad server software selects the ads based on the content of the page.

Who do you trust less - the NY Times [nytimes.com] or CmdrTaco [slashdot.org] ?

Slashdot, a technology news portal, has an even more elaborate system, which provides a customized list of postings for every viewer. The site measures how frequently someone contributes and how highly other users value those contributions. And among other features, it gives each user a "karma" rating, which then determines certain site privileges.

If you are willing to re-license this under the TPL, I would just love to turn it into a work of journalism. Very well done.
