Slashdot is dead.

Filed under: Feeds, News, Weblogs — Hogg @ 3:34 pm

The former heavyweight champ is dead. I am unsubscribing from the famed Slashdot.

Despite the plethora of great information provided by Slashdot, it’s always a day late and a dollar short. I can almost guarantee that the posts that are interesting to me on Slashdot have already been posted at least a day earlier on digg or on one of the other 150ish feeds that I read.

When Slashdot was in it’s prime, it was fantastic. Their editors were the gods of their own section of the universe. However, with today’s user-generated systems like digg and others, and the abundance of great blogs out there, the Slashdot editors do nothing but slow down the dispersion of information. By that time, everyone already has read about it.

I hate to do it, but it’s time that we all say goodbye to an old friend.
