Every Thursday, for the last 10 weeks straight I’ve been providing a quick synposis on the top 10 or 15 stories on the most popular topics on Digg.com in the Linux/Unix section. Not anymore… not Digg anyways.
This isn’t gonna be a rant, just the facts. Of the last ten articles I’ve written, all of them have been buried.
Two of them were buried even after hitting the front page. The best example I can give is the interview of David Liu, founder of gOS – which was mentioned by relatively high profile websites like Techmeme, Techcrunch, Webbalert, Lifehacker, etc… even a +5 insightful comment on Slashdot about gOS sent me thousands of hits.
It’s the only semi-quotable material from David Liu that I’ve found, other than press junket tours, so I went ahead and added a link to the article on Wikipedia, after making sure that it met the guidelines – I certainly do not have the credibility of a scientific journal, but I do have some authority on Technorati…
I’m welcoming ideas and comments on what to do about fixing this problem… still awaiting a reply from Digg Support.
