Slashdot Subscribers Now See The Future: Slashdot is now experimenting with enhancing its subscription service: besides the ability to suppress banner ads, limit journal postings to friends, and a few plums, subscribers can view the stories on the site before the non-subscribers, and may, in the future, have the ability to allow subscribers to post before the non-subscribers, though this move undoubtedly will create a furore among its rabidly loyal user-base.

For a story on the history of Slashdot and why the site is viewed as THE pioneer, read a rather controversial story I did, “Slashdot in the Balance? As Parent Company Struggles, Fiercely Independent Geek Site Is Newly Vulnerable“. Man, did I get bashed for this one!
