What's Digg?

About: digg


Digg is a technology news website that employs non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allowing an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do.

I would put options on the order of the stream (& maybe contents) . I have a love-hate relationship with the last edit going on top.
yep, definitely needs some more options

Seth says
should we point tag rooms here ?

Seth says
maybe we should compose the river by voting ?

It may be the competition, my vote would be hang out a while until we unk off the goo

yeah, truly.  

Incidentally i have changed from tagging sites as "competition" to tagging them as  "collaboration".   If a site does something effectively, then me thinks we should discover ways to collaborate with them rather than consider that they are competiting in our niche.  Then we have defined our niche as that site which is the most connected to what is happening on the web rather than a site that tryies to be the be-all of a web service.  Just a different attitude that i have discovered and wish to promulgate.

source:  TechCrunch:  Gaming Digg
Getting on to the home page of Digg (profile) sends a site a lot of traffic, and some folks will do just about anything for traffic. I know a lot of people who claim to have multiple Digg  accounts to give their posts a lift, but it appears that the practice has become more?professional recently. Richard MacManus has done some research on the issue and posts on his findings. Bottom line - at least for now, gaming Digg is exceptionally easy.

Seth says

Seth says
