The Rise of Digg.com

gwjc I'll keep using both, thanks. (429 comments)

I'd wager there are a large number of us who check both sites. Digg is fast and more varied; but more crap and dupes get through. Slashdot is picky and slow; but usually offers more depth and less garbage makes past the moderators. Kevin Rose himself said Digg was inspired after his interview for Tech TV with CmdrTaco; he thought there should be a slashdot where the users are the only moderators and submit whatever they want; which is a neat model. I find the bit about 'digg users don't click adds' a little dubious.. it's mostly the same crowd.. I find it hard to believe slashdot users are any different than digg users on average.
