A commenter on the post on the Naked Conversations blog has an interesting point about how Digg may get better at telling “people like me” what the world is thinking about. That raises another question: what world? We need filters or “sub-worlds”, thus my previous post.
Naked Conversations: Why I don’t dig Digg
I think that Digg is more useful as a barometer of the zeitgeist than as a definitive news source. At this point, I think the sample is a bit limited to the early adopters and the heavy-duty techies, but if digg or something like it goes mainstream, it becomes more and more able to tell people like me (in my case, PR flack and blogger) what the world is thinking about.
