Digg Suxx

I am a Digg fan … or rather, I was one. Since the past month or so, I am reading about Sarah Palin. Finally curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to click on one of the links. Read her wikipedia entry, you might get some insight into her. Anyway, that’s not the point.

Today, I am going through Digg, to find out six articles about Sarah Palin doing the rounds on the same Digg page … blehhh!! There have been rumours that Digg is rigged, now its just confirmed. The stories are made popular only by a select few and their followers. Is web2.0 a collaborative content management system always going to be plagued by a few leaders and a throng of their followers? If that’s the case, then I see Digg as nothing but a PR tool. Sad really.

    But there is no doubt about your feedback. I have never ventured into these diggs, del.icios and technoratis. So can’t really comment. But I can hint the truth.

  2. hmm .. I always thought that these systems would be at least democratic in nature. But now much to my chagrin, I see that even these systems are more or less like dictatorships. If X likes it, then I must also like this topic.
