A once-magnificently entertaining website whose heart, soul, and brain simultaneously died on August 25, 2010.
Goodbye oldtime Digg wit, humor, variety, democracy, interesting stories, and thoughtful commentary... hello boredom, ghost towns, corporate content takeover, and recycled Reddit leftovers.
A site created by former TechTV host, Kevin Rose, that uses a very unique feature to get all its tech news content, all the news is user submitted and promoted to the front page by people clicking the digg icon next to a story. When a story gets a certain amount of diggs it is promoted to the front page and everyone who visits the site will see it.
I posted urbandictionary.com on digg and it got 600 diggs!

"my bro just moved into new diggs across town."
A social bookmarking website, and now turned social networking as well.
It is very similar to the likes of reddit
, except now the creators are trying to make it into a social networking place as well (similar to facebook
with news/submitted things).
Created by Kevin Rose
, it is ran by its users through their own content driven submissions. The digg community voice consists of atheists
and their leader, Richard Dawkins
, Apple fanboy
s, pro-pot, Ron Paul
fanboys, and/or all sorts of liberal hipster
Submit a news story titled
"Ron Paul loves Apple's new product that resembles a pot leaf: cites and quotes famous atheist, Richard Dawkin, in the process."
and you'll get thousands of digg users to digg it.
Web 2.0 social bookmarking website created by Kevin Rose
that relies on it's users to submit interesting news, images, or videos.
While the Digg concept and interface is great, the website is unfortunately hampered by many flaws.
The front page is nearly controlled by power users and it's nearly impossible for average diggers to get their submission into the front page.
As Digg becomes more mainstream, the core intelligence of Digg is taking a nosedive with the website slowly becoming a variation of 4chan
Screw Digg, I'm switching to Reddit.
A site created to make you enjoy wasting your time
discovering pointless information that you'll forget the
How the hell did i waste the whole day on digg?
A web site that over glorifies everything that is linux or apple. Anything that is microsoft is evil apparently.
A digg user has a nerdgasm whenever someone besides hismelf knows what Linux is.
