  • But Slashdot/use.perl are, arguably, just collaborative blogs, little different from any other personal blog except that the interconnections between people's commentary is a bit better interwoven.
    Oh, and for the record, "blogging" is not "journalism" either. If you have to ask, the answer is No. Trust me -- I've seen your work -- you do not have the discernment to be a journalist. Journalism requires separating the wheat from the chaff, and you're all chaff, baby.

    Err, would you consider Slashdot/use.perl "journalism" then? I mean, *ahem* -- I've seen your work, I've seen the chaff, etc. Granted, there are other editors far, far worse, but even still: isn't it just a smidge hypocritical to complain about journalistic standards when you work for a site who's senior editors actively resist the idea that they should learn to spell, use proper grammar, check facts, and avoid duplicating stories. Or failing that, at least give someone the job of making sure that anything they post gets cleaned up a little?

    Nothing personal -- like I say, I think Pudge does a better job than some of the other /. editors, and this isn't meant to be am ad hominem attack -- but certainly this is a strange position for someone to be making comments about high quality journalism. Wouldn't you agree?

      Slashdot -- the main page etc. -- is not a "blog" in the same sense I am referring. I am referring to the "this is what I am thinking today, may it enrich you!" web sites. Slashdot is a "here's what's going on that may be relevant to you, discuss it if you wish" web site. It's really a very different animal.
