digg, dugg, dung!!! What?

Get with the program folks! Kevin Rose has done it again!
Once again, he brings you digg.com. Follows digg up with diggnation. These two sites kind of work together.

The digg site is:
What is digg?

Digg is a technology news website that gives editorial control back to the community. Most technology websites allow users to suggest content by submitting links or stories to an editor. If the editor believes the story to be relevant to the masses, he or she moves the story to the homepage. With digg, users also submit links for review. But rather than allowing an editor to decide which links go on the homepage, the users do.


The diggnation site is
The official digg.com Vid/Podcast w/Kevin Rose & Alex Albrecht


My suggestions are:

- Get an RSS feed reader such as RSSReader or Sage for your Firefox browser. Subscribe to the digg.com feed and enjoy the hour by hour updates of "news" in all sorts of areas

- Download and install iTunes (version 4.9 or higher). Click on the Podcasts item and search for diggnation; subscribe and wait for the weekly summary. Note that at the time of this writing, the video version has to be downloaded separately. They need a Feedburner enclosure feed.

- Sign up on digg.com and start "storying" and commenting. Get friends to sign up and combine your "feeds". Check out how digg works.

Of course this sounds like a commercial for Kevin Rose Enterprises... well maybe but as Andy McCaskey of Slashdot review might say
This is Rich Hand, I have no affiliation with digg.com or Kevin Rose except as an avid reader of digg.com


I really dugg digg this past week. All news, no dung! I would bet that once you digg you just won't stop.... dude! {inside video joke}

Reporting from Kent, Washington, I'm Rich Hand.
