Could you at least get some decent audio if you are going to do these? I listened to the first 10 seconds and could not stand the sound.
Also you have a smart audience, we would much prefer to just read the story. We all thought the book was better.
Come one guys, I know fracking is fun to hate on... but this one is just silly. The guy is suing to stop a water tower from being build near his house. He says nothing about stopping fracking. You don't even have to read the article, the summary sums that up nicely. Oh and fuck beta.

Forbo 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 intend to run a site much like Slashdot used to be — better articles, less decoration and less "in your face" functionality. 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
