Now, for those of you out of the loop, Slashdot is a user-supported blog - you find interesting stuff, send to CowboyNeal, and if it's good, he'll post it for everyone else to comment on. I had seen this same story this morning, so I could have forwarded it on the CowboyNeal, but didn't. Why not?
I didn't think it was interesting.
I've sent stuff to Slashdot before - never had it published. Apparently, no one else thinks my stuff is interesting.
So, why is some stuff interesting and other stuff not? What makes for an interesting choice of subject matter? Or to put more ego into it, perhaps the reason no one reads my blogs is because they're not interesting (the blog entries, not the people...)
Like it matters in a blog - there is no forced consumption here, so read if you want, but for me it's an interesting philosophical question...
