Salon - a high quality content provider

Oh bosh. You know Slate has, if not less silliness, higher-level silliness that Salon. Don't know why it's generally ignored.

Okay so they're not all ideal high quality content. Some of them are just neato. =) The list isn't a 'best of' specifically. It's a personal scan. Hopefully more people will respond and suggest additions and subtractions. Slate's better than Salon. I agree with you there.

Slashdot is a personal favorite, mostly for tech(unix) related discussion, but they also keep up on the relationship between capitalism, politics, big government and the internet and throw in the science news and occasional movie reviews.
