2 Questions really...
1) What is your favourite site for linux / internet / technology news?
2) What features do people look for in news websites, why would you read one website daily and another very rarely / not at all?
My favorite site for geek news is linuxweekly.co.uk! :lol:
Seriously, though, I like newsforge. They have good articles posted and do the occasional humor article or howto guide.
And as far as what to have on a news site: Interesting topics, not a lot of BS images and other things hiding the actual topics, things that you don't find on /., newsforge, the Reg.
