Material Detail


Slashdot is a site I frequent on a regular basis. The reason being is that you will find technology news here that you literally will not find elsewhere. Part of the reason for this is because a great number of the stories are user submitted. The editorial staff receives these submissions and determines if they are “newsworthy” and then posts them as news to the site. They deal with all aspects of technology news from software to political news and everything in between. The ability for users to comment on the news and give more insight on a story is another plus and a reason why I keep going back. In terms of a resource that should be added to Merlot I believe Slashdot provides a wealth of information for anyone needing to research technology news from a free database.
