Techdirt vs. Wired and Slashdot
from the interesting-day dept
So, the mention of Techdirt in Wired has turned this into a slightly more interesting day. A bit more traffic than usual. Anyway, a few notes in response to the article, and some of the mail I've gotten. (1) In response to Wired claiming we are "less successful" than Slashdot, that depends on how you define success. I'm pretty happy with the folks who read Techdirt on a regular basis, and don't need hoards of folks shouting each other down. (2) In response to questions I've gotten on how Techdirt is different than Slashdot. The focus of Techdirt is more on the business side of the aisle. Most of the folks involved in the site are business folks who work in the internet industry, and felt that Slashdot was a little too techie/Linux focused for our taste. That's all... back to your regularly programmed day.
