Greetings Soylentils! And welcome to SoylentNews!

We are here to deliver the best community-sourced news, catered for all manner of nerd! Because this is a grassroots based platform, the content feeds are powered by readers like you. Our main objective is to highlight news stories on the web that are of importance to everyone, but especially nerds. In addition, SoylentNews will strive to go beyond simple news-aggregation, with some core principles:
  • Providing a soapbox for experts to discuss their profession and solicit questions from a curious audience.
  • Allowing the community to comment, without any mandatory registration.
  • Staying mindful of the community's needs and wants while avoiding changes to satisfy an overarching corporate agenda.

We want to make this your source for news about technology, art, and science. We are the new kid on the block and are adapting quickly to satisfy our community's needs, as we look forward to exceeding your expectations and pushing boundaries like never before. Lastly, there will be no changes in format without a general consensus from the community. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the ride!

    ...wait. This is about NOT having overlords. This is about getting things back to the way they should be. I'm NOT going to use this old meme.

    Instead, kudos to everyone who worked so hard on this. The new site promises to be everything that other site used to be and more. Let's all work hard to ensure that we tell people about this place and promote it wherever we go. There's very little money yet, so do your part and spread the word.

      I can neither confirm nor deny the presence of overlords, nor that I am one of them. That is all. Move along.

      Great job guys, really nice to see the site live! I, for one, would like to welcome our new-car-smell overlords. Eventually, they'll will wear in and stink less. ;)

      Anyone feel like submitting some YRO style stories? I seem not to have been around long enough to submit.
