The New Slash, or the Remade Dot

I’ve been looking for something small to post lately. Just a bit of news to fire me back into regular posting.

Visiting Slashdot this morning gave me that impetus.

Go visit. Slashdot has a New Look. From my first initial impressions, it’s pretty sweet.

Again, very initial impressions.

It seems mostly cosmetic, on the front page. The format hasn’t changed, so much as the Look’N’Feel. Which is important. That old argument.

All the little widget’s they have been adding over the years finally look really nice. The polls, the extra bits of side info .. no longer square and clunky .. but round and shaded. Mmmmmm. Mmmmmmmm.

So that’s my first post back for a while. I’ve got a bunch in Drafts, but they haven’t seemed to click together.

Cheers,
