So my latest favorite website Digg.com released "Digg version 3" on Monday. I admit that I tend to assume that the three people that read this site also read slashdot and (now) digg, and don't repeat stories that I find there on here. Anyway, the new version of digg has some new things, some good, some bad, and some completely indifferent. I'll note these below with :-) :-( and :-| respectively.
The only real downside I see is the amount of stories that go onto the frontpage is going to double/triple/quadruple, meaning it'll be harder to catch up. Conversely, slashdot's story posting seems to have slowed down recently. It's still about a story an hour, it just "feels" slower compared to the rapid fire digg.com site activity.
