Drinking from the firehose

This is a brilliant recent example of why I love Slashdot. You just don’t get this level of humour in the comments on Digg (or any other community-driven aggregator for that matter). Slashdot is also inhabited almost exclusively by nerds and geeks which makes for some fascinatingly educated and insightful discussion. Until the StupidFilter is fully implemented and actually deployed on Digg, YouTube et al. I’m sticking with Slashdot.

Of course keeping on top items of from several important news oriented sites (and entertainment like xkcd and I can has cheezburger) becomes a lot easier with the use of RSS but when relying on these feeds alone you do miss out on the interaction element and fun of the comments.
