Are you digging enough?

Digg is the latest in the social bookmarking arena, still dominated by Tagging said to change the rules of search engines in the near future, but Digg is again a tag driven, technology focussed aggregator.

So what is digg?

Digg is a technology news website that combines social bookmarking, blogging, RSS, and non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allow an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do.

It is interesting to see how these tag-driven aggregators will in the long run out throw traditional search engines whose algorithms are predominently meant for indexing the webpage as it is.
