Hacker News is still getting worse/popular (I forgot when I first started using, I know it was before the Bitcoin whitepaper). Any other similar sites anyone can recommend?
It indeed got popular, i don't think it got worse, but i see what you are trying to express here, the circle jerk is almost palpable lately. Check out lobste.rs maybe you'll like it there.
Its very cool that lobste.rs uses IRC to request invites! Its so retro. I am going to try later.
+1 for lobste.rs. Quieter, saner, more on point methinks
I've been hoping to get an invite to lobste.rs for a while. One day :) it's a great community
Do you have an invite?
No, I'm not a regular user, i lurk there from time to time.
