In this contribution economy & new ecosystem and in the age of web content and masses arises Digg.com, the new phenomenon in the online world. Bweek writes,Digg.com features news about the tech industry, filters stories from all over the Internet and presents them in a linear Google News-type interface. All digg's content comes from its users, who scour news sites, blogs, and other online sources for interesting tidbits. The items users submit - usually in the form of a short writeup and a link - go into a queue, where members vote on their favorites. The 15 stories that attract the most votes - or "diggs" - are featured on the site's front page, which is updated several times an hour to keep the news fresh. It's this innovative "by the people, for the people" writing and editing system that sets digg apart from other Web sites. And it has some people calling digg the future of news. The 11-month-old site already has 80,000 registered members and 500,000 daily visitors, with 100,000 visitors being added every month. Paul Kedrosky points to Alex chart on Digg Vs Slashdott traffic.
