As avid lovers of all things innovative, we at Tablet Claw (Idea Harvest LLC) have reviewed some of the best sources for technology news, information sharing & valuable content on the web.
Today we start with Slashdot.org. Slashdot.org is an easily navigated haven of information waiting to be tapped for those as hungry as we are to know whats going on in the technology & business world. Slashdot both allows both readers of the site & veritable technology experts share a range of articles that covers a spectrum of technology focused verticals.
Slashdot is ‘powered by your submissions’ - which means its a good place to start if you’re looking for an answer to a technology orientated question.
On the right hand side Slashdot boasts a range of headings: An extremely interactive ‘Ask Slashdot’ section where you can post a question and your submission is then shared in the ‘Ask Slashdot’ forum, allowing for elaboration on your requested answer from other savee users/expert users alike, via a comment system.
There is a ‘Book reviews’ section where avid readers can post their reviews on technology related books but also post articles that share information contained within specific books - quite useful.
It offers a massive range of user submitted material in the form of the following headings, so bare these in mind if you’re looking for specific information in these areas: Cloud, Hardware, Linux, management, mobile, science, security & storage. Within each topic, there is a litany of submitted articles pertinent to that topic. There is a good keyword-strong search bar on the site so you dont necessarily have to sift through the thousands of articles in any given section to find something related to your interest.
You can also register with Slashdot, this is how you become an active poster online and allows you to share your own articles / book reviews / tips etc. Note though that you dont have to join Slashdot to be able to post. However doing so allows you to manage the content that shows up in your Slashdot login home. Nice. There is an awesome event library page which has a list of current, online webinars, online demos & general trade events that are going on.
I have 2 favourite parts of Slashdot. While all of the content in here is highly useful, its very text heavy. Fear not, Slashdot stories can be listened to via an RSS feed, very nice touch. Also there is great ‘Slashdot TV’ station where there are a good range of interesting and fun videos to choose from!
All in all Slashdot is a massive resource of information which is a buzzing community of value sharing. We highly recommend Slashdot.org here at Tablet Claw! (Idea Harvest LLC)
