Early Access to Slashdot

As discussed in Rob Malda’s journal, Slashdot is considering allowing early access to pending Slashdot stories for premium subscribers. But who cares about seeing one or two stories an hour, 10 minutes before it goes live?

A much better idea would be to allow paid access to the massive Slashdot submission queue, a business model made popular by Fark and FuckedCompany. This would allow eager newshounds and journalists to access a real-time feed of unedited story ideas and breaking news items, updated hundreds of times an hour.
