A different perspective on Digg

July 16, 2012

Om Malik has a different way to look at the success and failure of Digg:

If the yardstick of success is making money for the founders, employees and the investors, then Digg will go down in the annals of web history as a colossal failure. However, if your yardstick of success is defined by a company or a product being a change agent and an instigator, then Digg was a smashing success.

Om was on the beach when the news broke making his piece later than most every other blog or news outlet. I think that made for a much better, more well rounded, and reasonable article than most of the other articles I’d read.
