Cool Tools Episode 20 Screencast: Digg

Digg is a social networking website where users can discover and share content - news stories, blog posts, web links, photos, and videos - from anywhere on the Internet. Voting stories up and down is the site's main function, respectively called "Digging" and "Burying". Digg has created a community that collectively decides what “makes the news” for their users.

Thanks, Amy, I've been very curious about Digg but haven't really explored it yet.

Hi, Amy, and thank you for the screencast to go with your podcast on DIGG. It looks like a great example of "the crowd" collaborating on what is of value.

Thanks so much, Amy. I've been meaning to check out Digg for quite awhile now, and you've left me with no more excuses! I really liked your point about how it facilitates the transmission of stories that might not make it onto the mainstream news.

Hi Amy,
Thanks for sharing this information. I wonder how much difference there is between front page stories on the major media networks and on Digg.
