After having Slashdot as my browser’s startup page for over 8 years now, I am switching to having Google Reader now displayed by default. I do this primarily because I am very annoyed by the changes Slashdot has made recently as it seems to be attempting to make itself more “Web 2.0”. When I hit my desk in the morning, all I want is my news. So, I’ve subscribed to the Slashdot RSS and will read it along with the other stuff. End of an era, I say.
