  1. By looking at the domain registration info, it looks like digg is probably hosted at GoDaddy. We also have servers at Godaddy and had an outage today (along with a bunch of sites I visit that are hosted there). Interestingly enough, I can’t find any acknowledgement from them that they were down. How lame.

  3. I like the new features that were added especially the podcast section. Hopefully it will digg up some interesting new podcasts (no pun intended LOL).

  5. I work in the very conservative investor relations technology space. I would love nothing more than to see companies adopt social media and Web 2.0 technologies. There is lots of potential for these new technologies to democratize what has long been a lopsided field where a select few with special access to information profit at the expense of the masses.

    So I’ve been trying to promote RSS, blogs and new Web 2.0 technologies and sites to my audience of conservative business types. They’re just now getting interested.

    But there’s a big problem.

    And that’s the lack of reliability of a lot of the services I see. At the same time that Digg was down, I was getting errors from Technorati and from Blogbeat. This is not unusual.

    How can I promote these tools to my audience in all good conscience when I know there’s a chance they’re a) going to be down when my readers try to view them b) they might be out of business in a few weeks or months or c) they have no clue about the needs of big business.

    It’s really frustrating because there is so much potential for many of these companies to do some good in the world of finance.

  7. The new features are nice — but the person who designed the lay-out seems a bit brain-dead. And, the new features and changes seem to have killed the performance of the site. The site is extremely slow.

  9. ok I can tell by my last comment (I posted it at 10am in the UK) that your timestamps are all in your local time. I’m going to check on my blog now as I want to make sure all times are displayed in local times for readers.

  11. Scoble – when did you post this? 1.44am your local time, or 1:44GMT. This is one of the problems of many webpages/blogging platforms – they don’t appreciate international readers!

    Anyway, it’s still down and it’s 1000GMT. That’s a big outage for a big site like Digg.

  13. Yeah I’ve noticed the same, it was up for a few hours I believe, but so far it’s been down about an hour.
