Whatever happened to Slashdot? Once upon a time, even a mention on Slashdot would cause enough traffic to flood your server.

You make the front page of Slashdot these days (even for a prolonged period) and it’s barely a tiny traffic bump in the scheme of things. Seriously, a few of us seem to have noticed this. It’s like the folks that use the site pretty much stopped reading the pages they link to.

Sure, the place itself seems busier than ever, and that’s great for them, I’m sure, but have they become so much of a self-contained, content-summarizing niche that they’re no longer significant in terms of actual eyeballs?
