I’m on the record saying that digg would die in 2007. But now I’m not quite sure.
If you read this experience here, where someone made an ill-advised comment on a story, you’ll see the craziness that can ensue when a whole bunch of strangers get together at once.
If you drop into any newspaper site, at the bottom of each story will be a “digg this” button. Any blog worth its salt will have a similar digg option. The mass popularity of digg has drawn everyone into it’s fold.
Just don’t expect to find anything of value on digg. It’s more a treasury of attention grabbing headlines and outrageous summaries; people and individuals entertaining themselves in a global meeting place.
