Digg. (or: groove is in the diggs)

Digg the exampleScoble pointed at Digg, and now I’m really interested.

Combine tagging with voting, add comments and some temporal controls to it, and whop! You have a contemporary-looking Slashdot alternative.

What’s most amazing is that trolls seem to find comment threads literally everywhere; it’s like there’s a troll coordination system (conTroll?) that watches for new communities, and sends envoys straight on in to say stupid things. The comment rating system looks a bit too effort-laden for now.

Watching DiggSpy is hypnotic. In fact, I’m going to stop typing now and watch for a while. Wonder if I can Digg Diggspy itself…
