    A very interesting video, its nice to hear about a product from someone who is involved in the company. It certainly sounds like a good site to join and the Digg feature should prove very useful for other companies. The additional features should certainly come in handy.

    Hi five to Kevin & Co. for staying ahead of the curve and reassessing their business model. In particular I appreciate Mike’s focusing on business use of Kevin’s new tool for integration in to Facebook.

    Now I get it. Amazing how just one human conversation can explain what countless text posts tried to explain. Thanks Michael for taking the time to create this video with the screen shots – as I used this as a sort-of tutorial. I’ve had a Digg account for a long time, but now I can see the possibilities. In fact, I’m going to add back in the Digg icon in my sexy bookmarks on my blog because of this.

    So if I already have a Digg account should I create a new one?

    Great interview, Mike. I have been ignoring Digg because it seemed like it was a full time job to figure out how to get any exposure and influence. I like that one can now feed their own blog to the site and syndicate everywhere else. Though I can also do that with Posterous and Tumblr, and other similar sites.

    aha! The fog has lifted – thank you for this! I’m off to re-explore Digg and also integrate it for other people too
