Digg is an interesting site. I browsed in several categories – World and Business, Science, and Lifestyle. I found the items similar to the news items that are on my browser page when I first open it. I already subscribe to several news sites that have the same type of contemporary information, so I didn’t open an account.
As a librarian, I am used to evaluating news sites for reliability and quality – the fact that a site ranks news items only by popularity with those whose credentials I’m unacquainted with is not a recommendation.
Digg would be entertaining if I had a half-hour to spend in a waiting room, but I don’t see that its service is uniquor particularly necessary for me.
Web2Access doesn’t review Digg at this time. However, if that changes, I will post an update.
