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!

    It also displays and runs in lynx text only browser! How many sites can make that claim these days?

    Also you got a cool UID number... 360!

    I love that SN works with lynx. Still rockin' it "old school" style in 2014? No worries at *this* website. Dice can take their Javascript-by-the gigaton "ooh shiny" Beta and cram it.

    Oh and I'm thrilled about my UID. Sometimes ya just get lucky! That's why I put the "full circle" mention in my .sig; homage to a good UID is the least I can do. :D
    "Full circle," indeed. A brave new world, all over again: SoylentNews.
