Slashdot, that ubertech, ubergeek site that we all know and love, has inserted “Ads by Google” Adsense ads into the Slashdot RSS feed for a while. Nothing wrong with that.

Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with that, either – in fact, horny male geeks under the age of 40 probably account for a large percentage of their readership. But it’s still…interesting.
