Its not always the news people want to see, but its 95% of those. A great place to learn new tech tendencies and news from the electronic world.
Overall a great site. I can't help but feel with time it is becoming less relevant. It used to be a must visit site to keep up with the cutting edge in tech news and geek like things. Also, the comments and discussion where more valuable than the articles linked too. Today, I very rarely find any of these very high quality comments. Now there are similar sites all over the internet. Its watered itself down to include topics like politics which I would never go there for anyway. Not nearly as many geeky, hacking, linux or how to DIY stuff like they used to have. Despite that I still read it daily and love the site but its significance to me is lessening regularly.
Before there was Digg, there was Slashdot, which lets users submit stories to the editors, who post the best of them online. Though the site predated Web 2.0 and the blogging revolution (and even Bubble 1.0), it's still the leading gathering place for hard-core nerds. We predict that even after Digg, there will still be Slashdot.
Slashdot: The weathered pioneer of some form of Web 2.0 roots - I don't find slashdot to be particularly intriguing anymore, despite that it is still very high quality and has a solid bunch of people behind it. It's been up since 1997 and was the first website of it's kind to become prominent, and remained the only one for quite a while. It's like a digg predecessor without the digging.
Slashdot: News for nerds, stuff that matters. Timely news source for technology related news with a heavy slant towards Linux and Open Source issues.
