There's an interesting new Slashsite out there. Technocrat is back on-line after a several year hiatus. I don't believe it used Slash before.
Technocrat is Bruce Perens' new tech news site. He announced it in his User Journal over on Slashdot the other day.
Here's Bruce's stated motivation for a new site:
It's intended to be a more mature, and hopefully more relevant, forum than Slashdot. No ACs, a special focus on technology policy and high technology outside of the conventional corporate model, but conventional tech news as well.
Sounds like a nice place to visit. I hope it works out well.
