Finally getting around to playing with the Journal features of Slashdot. I have to admit, this place really is quite amazing. CmdrTaco and his merry men have definitely put a bit of thought and effort into it.
I became a subscriber to Slashdot a few weeks ago. I've been reading this place for the last 3 or 4 years, and I think they deserve my money. CmdrTaco recently wrote in his journal that he envisioned Slashdot to be an informal dirty gritty news site. This works for me. There's a certain honesty in this type of news reporting that the more polished news sites lack.
I'm not usually prone to doing Journal entries, especially online, but I might have to try this out more often.
