a website billed as news for nerds, stuff that matters,
it is full of interesting techie news items. They once plugged the unmaintainable code essay and I started getting 250 hits per second to my website. Hence, to slashdot means to
overwhelm a site with a favourable plug. Note the site is slashdot.org, not slashdot.com. It lets
you submit technical news stories in various categories. Users give feedback how good
they are. Let’s you publish a personal livejournal.
