Slashdot.org was once the darling of the techo/geek internet.. And once was the starting page for many who wanted to stay on top of the coolest stories.
Those days have long since passed but Slashdot seems on an exponentially fast track to become an unintentional satire of its former self. It's almost as if we are witnessing a slow motion meltdown of the site and a deliberate attempt to prove how bad they are at selecting useful and interesting stories.
Here's the final straw for me. A *front page* story today: A story about a story about a google employee that has a collection of pictures of himself with famous people who visit google. Now that's news!
Google Geek's Photos of the Famous:
"The NYTimes has a fun story about a relatively unknown Google employee and his hobby — taking photographs of himself with famous visitors to Google's headquarters.
Sad day to see such a site fall so far. At least i have one less site to visit now on my bookmark list.
