Real World Stuff writes: "Forever the Grand Daddy of online web bulliten boards, Slashdot.org (Wholly owned by technology advertisement company VA),is moving from antiquated editorial processes, and moving toward upstat Digg.com collaborative content processes. By implementing FireHose, Slashdot.org allows for users to vote, or "digg", articles for promotion to publishing on the web site. Beta implementation of the kludge process introduces new coloring scheme, and more user input. Slashdot.org clings to the original roots of Robert Malda, and refuses to fall prey to the style over substance offerings of other collaborative web sites. With a site that can count life span in decades, it is refreshing to see a breath of fresh, albeit halitosic, air into the venerable Slashdot.org."
