Decline and fall of the Slashdot empire

Jeremy Zawodny comments today that "Slashdot is going out of style in 2006". I agree with his commentary that it will take some time for Slashdot to eventually go the way of Altavista, but he's completely right on with his prediction. In the article he notes that it is difficult to judge what the few in control over at Slashdot will find worthy and quickly one decides it's not only worth posting but you're so unsure what you'll get if you read that there are better feeds out there to spend time on.
