Major Internet Censorship Bill Passes In Turkey

I don't see a problem in this. Let them make money, as long as they deliver a good slashdot replacement. He'll, I'd even pay for premium as for arstechnica. They are also corporate owned and keep up a great community.

Ask Slashdot: Can some of us get together and rebuild this community?

bopal Re:Buy It Back (Run it non-profit) (21 comments)

Awesome Idea. Best time to do this will be after the boycott next week when dice falls really hard and they have to bury their wet dreams about advertising revenue.

Major Internet Censorship Bill Passes In Turkey

bopal Facebookesque (104 comments)

After looking at how dice.com sells slashdot http://slashdotmedia.com/about... it's not hard to guess that the whole redesign is just for revenue purposes. And a good looking site just sells better to media morons.
I'm doubtful that the boycott will work but it's a good way of giving dice the finger.
Also there are two options that will work of getting slashdot back. First is to build a new site, which is was OkianWarrior suggests: http://altslashdot.org/
Second is to set up a kickstarter to buy slashdot back form dice.com: http://slashdot.org/comments.p...

Well, it surely would be enough for all CS need my high school has. I also know one school whose best workstation for the kids (ok, its an elementary) is a 486dx-100. There are still plenty of tasks this computer would be useful at.
