Reads Slashdot

Project info

ads_slashdot is a tech-news Web site allowing for people of many backgrounds, but mostly in technical fields, to comment and converse on the stories. This results in long threads of highly intelligent conversation and many varying opinions and positions on a given topic. The contrast between someone who gets their news from mass media sources and someone who takes advantage of the much wider context and opinions offered on Slashdot was easy to represent in a simple dialogue exchange. The retro illustration and colors are meant to give the ad a stronger visual presence in technical magazines where the ad would likely be running.
