Scoble 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…
