Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There are already applications that write better news articles than the average Times or Guardian piece.
I guarantee that RIM, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and Yahoo! all have engineers worth far more than any of their (often detrimental) CEOs.
