Slashdot in the pink

April 1, 2006

In the spirit of April Fools Day, [Slashdot]( has changed it’s look from it’s signature teal colour, to hot pink!

Apparently, this is in response to its marketing department’s “extensive reasearch over the last three quarters” that its “audience is strangely disproportionately skewed toward males.” Like, 98.3% males to be precise.

To tap into the female audience, a noticable change is in its masthead from “News for Nerds. Stuff that matters” to “OMG!!! Ponies!!!”
