Garage Sale Stella Part IV: A New Hope

Slashdot is officially Dead to me.

To my friends over at, has been dead for a long time. But, I admit, for over a year I’ve frequented both sites. Today, that ended. The level of stories has sunk to new lows and new levels of idiocy. But that’s not what did it. Yes, I have more junk to sort through to get stuff that’s interesting, but the worst part is that I went to go to the rest of the story, and instead of a “Read More” link, there’s a “Share” link to share the post on social media. I don’t think so. Goodbye, Slashdot. You were great back in the day, but what can I say? These days, it’s no Dice.

    Can you recommend a good alternative?

    1. Not a single alternative, no. I usually end up reading Ars Technica and Hacker News. IEEE Spectrum is also quite good.

      Thanks for the comment!
