New Digg might be relevant to me again

I've been a fan for a long time of Digg, and Kevin Rose for him executing on the ideas that made it popular (even though they were never really new ideas). He posted a short video previewing the new version of the site, and I have to say, it's a lot more compelling than it used to be. I honestly stopped going to Digg, because the stuff in the tech world was adequately covered in the RSS feeds I subscribe to (between Ars Technica and News.com, mostly covered). I didn't really give that much of a shit about what was generally popular, but narrowing it to people I know may make it significantly more compelling. We'll see.

Couldn't agree more. He spent some time talking about the new Digg on TWiT. As he described it, I kept thinking it was the perfect direction for him to take. Facebook has become my default place to share links to articles, but I don't like doing it there.

This is not only something that sounds worthwhile, but it actually provides a solution that I've been seeking.
