I've just published the first of a two-part interview with digg founder Kevin Rose. In the interview we discuss digg's popularity, its battle with spammers, the recent issues with GroupThink and digg's upcoming personalization features.On my ZDNet blog
As you know, I've been somewhat critical of digg recently - in particular regarding recent signs of GroupThink in the system. So I hope this interview addresses some of those issues. Here's a taste:
"We plan to add the ability to mark stories as false or inaccurate, so that other users can see they've been marked inaccurate. There's such a mass of stories coming in at a very fast rate Äî it's nice to know that as quickly as digg can break stories, they can also break follow-up stories that might contain additional information or a follow-up to the original story."
