It's great when the good guys win

Listening to This Week in Tech, they mentioned that the guys at Revision3 scored $2.8 million in funding (story here).

Kevin Rose and the other guys (including other former TechTV guys) involved with the company started digg.com, a "social news, networking and bookmarking site" a few months ago, and it has grown to epic proportions. They've managed to attract the attention of investors.

I am really happy to hear this, because I think they're good guys that create great content. Had Comcast not killed TechTV with G4, they'd all be big TV stars. The irony is that the death of TechTV has spawned this meaningful IPTV content. When good people get screwed, but benefit in the end, you feel like there's justice in the world.

I admit I'm a little jealous, but I'm also excited at the amazing possibilities that the Internet and technology continue to provide.

I spent a good chuck of today discovering what these guys have put out there. Needless to say, I was beyond impressed and already have them subscribed to in iTunes.

I've always been impressed with them, especially when they were on TechTV. Met Kevin Rose at CES last January and he seemed like a genuinely nice guy. All of them socialized with the crowd gathered around watching them do the show. Comcast killed TechTV. Another reason why I will never go back to Comcast and will stick with satelitte until something better comes along.
