As a general rule, I don't post site news on weekends or holidays, but I'm making an exception due to the unique circumstances. I'm pleased to announce that as of today, our articles of incorporation have been accepted and signed off by the State of Delaware, and "SoylentNews PBC" is a licensed public benefit corporation, ready to accept business, effective today.

I feel that its fitting to post this today on July 4th, Independence Day, given the mission and unique history of SN. I'm going to do a follow-up post on Monday with more information on where we go now. Until then, have an awesome Independence Day, and a great weekend :-)

    ...shut the fuck up.

    Seriously.

    This is the opposite of a sellout. By incorporating as a public benefit corporation, the Soylent officers are now legally obligated to do that which they've merely given their word that they'd do until now. And they've demonstrated a serious commitment that that they at least intend to be in this for the long haul.

    There won't be any sellout to Dice; a public benefit corporation is useless to that type of commercial interest.

    So, really. Stop your bitching. This is cause for celebration and congratulations.

    And if you don't think it is, then what the fuck are you doing here in the first place?

    To all the trolls...shut the fuck up.

    No, don't!

    If you shut up because someone is trumpeting so , all the "public benefit" of replacing the green site with soylentnews is gone and having the SoylentNews PBC is meaningless.

    Please, do feel free to troll and do feel happy that others have points to mod you as such - trolling is part of a healthy nerd news community.
    Maybe in one year time your "trolling" turns out to be just "an opinion ahead of its time" (although "bacon" is already old as a topic, using it in comments seems a waste of time. Better use it in your dishes... mmmm, yummy).

    Seriously.
