A quick post about a new site I’ve bookmarked recently: news.ycombinator.com, aka “Hacker News.” After years of looking at slashdot.org, I realized that I had to put up with lots of dumb news articles, as well as the countless “Funny, 5” comments that I rarely found amusing. Hacker News, or HN, has an extremely simple interface, and the news it posts are always direct links to a single article. I like it much better than slashdot. The articles are generally geared toward programmers and computer-nerds, like myself.
I recommend it.
