I’m really thinking about quitting Digg, if something is really interesting, I’ll hear about it from the blogs I visit.
You will. I stopped reading Digg last year and haven’t missed anything - plus, I’ve gained back the wasted time I used to spend going through worthless feed headlines. More recently, I stopped reading TechCrunch and all blogs about blogging with equally positive results.
Have you seen Idiocracy? Digg is the best example of what happens in an unchecked democratic system among a mostly idiotic audience: the entire front page is a series of “Ow! My Balls!” stories. It’s like an automatic Fark.
