Slashdot is already dead. What will be left here when you remove community and discussion system? Hacker news is much better regarding stuff that matters already. On the other hand I am afraid that the next great thing has to just happen (like Slashdot happened) not to be engineered as some profitable project.
Might be a philosophical question whether tipping a developer is not in conflict with free software idea.
Wonder if only dumbasses in old Greece were without voting privileges or how else could be democracy invented...
I was reading slashdot for past 8 years since my high school. I have created this new account just to say THANK YOU. It is almost frightening that such a news about someone who I haven't ever met and who I know just as a strange nick under some of those interesting posts would bring so much nostalgic thoughts. Things are definitely changing way much faster than I would like. Thank you CmdrTaco for all the stuff that matters. Because of you I know what is going on in the world around.
