On (NASDAQ:LNUX) - "What Comes After SourceForge and Slashdot?"
"...When your company owns the biggest open source code repository online, the most venerable geek news aggregator there is and many geeks' favorite place to shop for wacky stuff - what do you do next? Hopefully we're about to find out, because the owners of SourceForge, SlashDot and ThinkGeek are apparently working on a new project.
One of the most interesting ways to get an idea where companies of interest are headed is by watching who they hire. That's one of the reasons why we launched Jobwire, our site tracking who gets hired in tech and new media. SourceForge, also the name of SourceForge and Slashdot's parent company, has made a couple of interesting hires lately.
This morning we reported on the hire of Michigan software developer Dave Brondsema, who wrote on his blog that he will start "working on a new project within the company, not any of those [well known] sites" early next month..." source: December 29, 2008 ReadWriteWeb.com by Marshall Kirkpatrick and Jobwire.
