Slashdot Interview

Primary tabs

SlashDotInterview turned out to be a great success, Alaa is a famous guy now, everyone loves him, this time there was almost no racism (we must have misjudged slashdotters then) and very few trolls even though we got 530+ comments. Alaa met wonderful people, made new friends, got invited to Orkut and we did not get slashdotted.

The Interview

Hey man... I just read your answers on /. a few mins ago! Cool stuff man! I LOVE how honest you were portraying reality in Egypt! The whole bit about the education system was a blast. I am sure someone will flame you for being too 'honest', but hey... someone has to!

Good job man! Loved it. Nazeeh

"return 42"

I wonder how many people around Egypt get that ;)


Does it have to do with THE question? ;)

Alaa, I really enjoyed the interview you did with slashdot. Thanks for sharing a bit about your country. Here's hoping that technology brings people of different cultures close in friendship.

Thanks Alaa for the very interesting Slashot story. Too bad so many are idiots but that's the internet as a whole.

Hello Alaa!

Great interview at /. ! I enjoyed the answers to questions which are all too common here in the States. I get to answer them with respect to Cyprus, where I come from, which is in the same neighborhood.

I really enjoyed your slash dot interview. I liked most of your answeres (althogh some of the questions were really silly) but I think that /. has the worst comments system ever. its very hard to consentraite on a subject raised in a comment when you have to jub links here and there. anyway u did great, keep up the good work


Alaa can i ask you a question mate? how do i go about adding my blog to this site? i already added it to the Egyptian bloggers ring
