Automattic WordPress launches (powered by WordPress)

d.png, a great looking new site by famous Walt Street Journal journalists Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg launched today. We’re particularly excited about this project because they chose WordPress MU for their publishing platform and we are VIP hosting the site for them on our server infrastructure. The site includes four separate blogs (including one by John Paczkowski of Good Morning Silicon Valley fame), lots of video, guest bloggers, and free access to a couple of years worth of Walt Mossberg WSJ columns (I think this is a first).

A great team was assembled to build this site. The design is by Mule Design, implementation by Alex King and Adam Tow, hosting by Automattic and project management by the Allthingsd and Dow Jones teams as well as Brian Oberkirch.

Excellent website! But all of these high profile blogs like essentially contain what? There are some basic discussions on some topics like the 'Tubes' but no-one still comes anywhere close to SlashDot.
