Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

I made it to the Digg Homepage

Digg.com, for those of you who don’t know, is a social technology news website where users digg (vote) stories to promote them to the homepage. I believe 75 diggs will earn you coveted homepage status. Just for fun, go there and read 3 or 4 stories. Some are really geeky or funny, others are real news.

One bottleneck to the process is that people tend to post things over and over and over and… ad nauseum. To solve this problem, the submission get matched agianst other similar posts and there is a search box so you can try to weed out your news before you post and get angry comments. The seceond one is posting stale news from days, weeks, months, or even years past, although it did re-unite me with my favorite car commercial (Honda).

My story:

Google Founders Buy a 767 Jumbo Jet

Apparently, a 767 is not a Jumbo Jet. Oh well. At the time of this post, I was up to 1073 diggs, and my user name now has a little (1) next to it. Hooray-a for me!

My Digg Profile

Here you can check out the stories I have been digging recently. You could also see if I have any more stories on the homepage. I doubt it will ever happen again, but we’ll see.
