We are a volunteer-powered news aggregation site that deliver articles about technology, science, and general interest. We also host public discussion and utilize a powerful comment moderation system. This is an open-source, community-driven project and evolves based on the will of the community.
We've incorporated as a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation (similar to a non-profit) as we feel our mission to provide a platform for news dissemination and relevant discussion is not only essential for mankind, but also a legal right (i.e. freedom of press, freedom of speech) at least in the USA, and these are liberties which we aim to protect.
Now, go forth and submit stories, comment, moderate, and be free!
Slashcode is the code for All Things Slash. Slash is the source code and database that was originally used to create Slashdot, and has now been released under the GNU General Public License. It is a bona fide Open Source / Free Software project.
Good open source projects, depend on the community. Thanks for your continued support, and let us know what we can do to make the site better.
Slash and Slashcode could not be possible without the use of some great Open Source software.
