The trouble with DIGG

A fellow ForeverGeek writer presents some striking revelations about how works (or how some perceive’s inner workings to be).

Digg as an idea is fantastic. As a system of disseminating news without having to wait for editors it is amazing. But it seems to be suffering from a power complex.

I react with my own concerns.

Incidents like these (the FG banning) just show that even good things can be corrupted. And DIGG runs the risk of becoming just another centralized/editorialized news site. Whether or not the creators are involved, this would affect them in a negative light.

This should serve as an eye-opener: is Web 2.0 really what it’s set out to be? Or are we just eventually evolving into yet another Web 1.0 model?
