The New New Digg Nation

Digg, one of the more interesting social news start-ups is changing its stripes. Kevin Rose, the hipster co-founder of the San Francisco-based company announced some changes in the way Digg does its digging, which may or may not go-down well with the larger Digg Nation.

“After considerable internal debate and discussion with many of those who make up the Top Digger list, we’ve decided to remove the list beginning tomorrow,” he writes. The cause of this change – some blatant attempts to game the Digg system, like this one. While their motives are pure, Digg team is taking a huge risk of alienating the same users who spend countless hours finding and digging stories. What do you think about these changes?
