Video of The Day #14 And Stuff

The music in this video is just right for the weekend. =) And Andy McKee has some crazy guitar skills.

Anyway, I'm not sure if most of you out there have heard of this site called Digg. For those of you who don't know what Digg is, here's a little help from the omniscient Wikipedia:

"Digg is a community-based popularity website with an emphasis on technology and science articles. It combines social bookmarking, blogging, and syndication with a form of non-hierarchical, democratic editorial control. News stories and websites are submitted by users, and then promoted to the front page through a user-based ranking system. This differs from the hierarchical editorial system that many other news sites employ.

Readers can view all of the stories that have been submitted by fellow users in the "digg/All/Upcoming" section of the site. Once a story has received enough "diggs", depending on the calculations performed by Digg's algorithm, it appears on Digg's front page. Should the story not receive enough diggs, or if enough users report a problem with the submission, the story will remain in the "digg all" area, where it may eventually be removed."

So in a nutshell, Digg's front pages are filled with news stories that are submitted by users, and approved by users.

My whole point in bringing up this subject is this: Digg is one of the best sites on the internet. Lots of times the information that I get from this site is reprinted in the papers two days later. Topics like James Kim and his family's disappearance, the boy with the severed head, Wiimotes breaking television screens. Alright, they may not be ground breaking news, but it's information that's interesting enough (at least the papers think so) to read. And that's where I get lots of my videos too.

So the next time you're looking for the latest on technology, news stories or videos, you know where to go.
