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!

    Great job! My congrats to everyone who sweated blood over the past week in order to make SN a reality. Your vision and determination are hugely appreciated. May numerous slashdotters back at our former home find their way here and behold the's a new day as well as a new era.

    On a purely personal level, I registered this nickname out of joy from getting out from under the thumb of all the very obvious and heavy-handed Firehose deletion of anything tagged "olivesandfeta" during the Beta protest. I guess Dice will never figure out that they "can't stop the signal". They might have stuffed the anti-Beta genie back into the bottle, but the mods never realized that it only would have worked if they were naked AND petrified.

    Long live SoylentNews; may we all be worthy of it!
