When Greg Davies (cGt2099) was banned from Digg for his 4th TOS infraction, it got a lot of play. Several top Diggers made mentions of the occurence and offered support (and criticism) for this. One thing in particular stood out in the post on his blog: he’s found a new home at Mixx.com.
Over the past couple of weeks, a subtle under-current of curiosity has brought many of the most active Digg members to check out this Digg Clone. None of them have left Digg. Many haven’t even posted anything yet. Still, they were curious.
We could discuss the platform differences, community difference, pros and cons all day, but this is not a critique. I’m not bashing Digg. You won’t be hearing about the “Mixx Effect” any time soon. The Wall Street Journal won’t be partnering with them. Any rumors that start flying around about the sale of Mixx will not be in the $300,000,000 range.
Comparisons are for others to make. I just put together a little screenshot that I thought was interesting.
A few heavy hitters’ names in that list.
I’m not sayin’. I’m just sayin’.
