+ - How to fix Slashdot Beta? 17

Submitted by Forbo
Forbo (3035827) writes "Since the migration to Slashdot Beta was announced, it seems all meaningful discussion has been completely disrupted with calls to boycott and protest. Rather than pull an Occupy, what can be done to focus and organize the action? What is the end goal: To revert entirely to the previous site, or to address the problems with the new site?"

I'm reviewing and getting comfortable with slashcode right now. I'm looking for volunteers to help with setup and running the site. If the site becomes profitable, I intend to hire from the pool of volunteers. If you've ever wanted to participate in a site like Slashdot, here's your chance! I'm particularly in need of people who can:
  • Set up and manage a high-traffic site (servers, load-balancers, data sites, &c)
  • Edit story submissions
  • HTML, CSS, and script creation/bugfix/repair

Contact me if interested John (at) AltSlashdot (dot) org"

Discussion has begun to create an alternate site."

The MotoX already has this feature available. "Trusted Devices" ... but you have to have a bluetooth device on your wrist, preferably a BT 4.0 (low energy) device, like the Pebble Smartwatch.

Imagine if your phone had no "desktop" to speak of, and instead the ONLY UI available was an open list of ALL installed applications, taking up tons of screen space for nothing. THAT is Windows 8's UI, and it is universally DESPISED by everyone.

You have just described iOS. It has no "desktop" to speak of. Just a list of all your apps, and folders.
