Skipped April Fool's on slashdot this year, but caught wind of this achievements thing. Personally, I like it. It's cute and stupid in a good way IMO. A couple observations:
- As with most slashdot cruft, it doesn't work properly, as there's plenty missing or with the wrong stats.
- Interestingly enough, this may be the first time management has announced a new feature and actually admitted they're going to keep how it works as opaque as possible.
