Digg is cool. It’s a site that links to other websites submitted by users. Users can then comment and rate the links. Digg uses “non-hierarchical editorial control. ” More and more I’m finding links of real interest to me. (I subscribe to Digg’s RSS feed.) Granted the topics are a bit geeky because they are submitted by geeks. But hey… I’m a geek too!
Digg is like Slashdot [respect!] in a way but has a more modern web interface. Plus it puts the off site link in the header title. This makes it very simple to just click on the link and go. Like a search engine. As Dave Winer wrote the other day, “People come back to places that send them away.” This seems like a counter intuitive truth. It’s just good karma really.
From their website:
What’s 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.
