Journal GeorgeH's Journal: Poltics action center 2

First, I wonder why I can't select politics as a topic.

Second, now that Slashdot has a politics section, I wonder if there will be any thought to turning the fury of Slashdot comments into actual change. The EFF has an action center that allows people to contact their representatives on important issues. Why can't Slashdot do the same?

For instance, Slashdot has tirelessly covered Diebold and touch screen voting problems in general. It would be ludicrous to say that Slashdot is providing neutral coverage. Since they have taken a position, why not take the extra step and provide a way to make change happen?

For instance, on this Diebold story why not add a link to a form that allows people to congratulate the California Attorney General or let their own AG know that you support CA's action. It would be the Slashdot effect applied to government action.

Third, thank the maker that the politics section isn't as ugly as Games or IT (or YRO, or Apache)

  • we can get Slashdot to take action against the staleness and ugliness of IT and the garishness of the games section. And ... how about matching headers for the Dev section and Apache so there isn't a jarring clash of the green vs. purple. Sigh. Wonder how the Slash in CSS project is coming. I understand the 1994 design has a 'charm' but sheesh! Web design has matured all over.

    Oh and a nitpick - You have a typo in the title of the entry 'Poltiics'.
