cmdrtaco may have a point

In an interview reflecting on 10 years of Slashdot (wow, has it really been that long?) Malda notes:

Look at Reddit. It started small with smart people. As it's grown, the stories went from links to interesting stories with well-thought-out articles, but now it's denigrated to "Here's a neat picture." The attention span of the crowd behind it has degraded over time.

The hottest 5 links right now may be photos, but I don't know if it's necessarily a reflection of our community's attention span.

Wanna go ride bikes?
