IAM Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda, Founder of Slashdot, AMA.
In 1997 I started Slashdot.org. For several years, we pioneered news aggregation and on-line communities while exploring our niche of the 'net under the slogan, "News for Nerds, Stuff that Matters." Our work was later expanded upon at countless other more successful sites including Reddit and the Huffington Post.
I left Slashdot last year, took a long time off, and then started work at the Washington Post Co's WaPo Labs… their digital media R&D skunkworks group. I work as their Chief Strategist and Editor-at-Large, contributing what I can to a variety of projects ranging from their Social Reader, to some projects under development. From here I am able to continue to explore my interests in news, journalism, technology, and communities.
Today you can find me on twitter as @cmdrtaco and on Google+ as +Rob Malda where I continue to curate the same sort 'Stuff that Matters' that I was sharing long before Slashdot existed, but without any pressure.
I'll hopefully be answering from 2pm-5pm ET.ho
