  • 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.

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!

    Why? It's already slightly embarrassing that all recent threads there are spammed by AC comments about the launch. Not to mention it would actually decrease the number of people participating in discussions here.

    I believe everyone who showed even slight interest for alternatives to /. on /. is aware of SoylentNews.

    I can see your point, and agree that people who want an alternative probably already know about SoylentNews. I wasn't aware of AC's spamming threads on slashdot because I haven't visited the site for the past 8 days now.

      If you haven't been there I apologize for my abrasive tone. I find spam annoying whatever the product is and Slashdot was spammed heavily during the boycott.

        I also find this 'posted as AC even though correctly previewed as myself' bug annoying.
