My friend Crystal reads Slashdot. I've started reading it too, but most of it is too technical for my puny brain to comprehend. In case you're wondering where the name "Slashdot" came from, it's a parody of a URL (interesting tidbit I got from watching CNN Headline News this morning). Your next question is probably why CNN Headline News was reporting about Slashdot. Well, they have just launched a new section for gamers. Their tagline is "Game News for Nerds". Excellent! Something to complement the information on GameSpot. Oh, and CNN said that in many ways, Slashdot is the "grand daddy of blogs". Cool.
