Slashdot the “News for nerds, stuff that matters” social news site turns 15 this month. I have been using Slashdot for many years and it is one of the first real social news sites and site that posted tech / nerd news. For me the “News for nerds, stuff that matters” really hit a chord because it was the type of news I was looking for on the internet, not popular news or politics. Also the fact that the content was user-driven was really interesting to me. Being in the tech industry we see many sites come and go, but it is great to see Slashdot alive and well.
