Trailblazing social news site Digg relaunched with a much-anticipated new version today and it was a busy day behind the scenes. This photo of the Relaunch War Room at Digg headquarters was shared on Twitter by Digg's Chief Revenue Officer Chas Edwards this afternoon. Another, from Kevin Rose's iPhone, is posted below. The day was not without technical challenges.

Are these photos of the rebirth of a more effective Digg, finally achieving the personalization company leaders have long said they sought, or scenes from the decline of yesterday's online empire - surpassed by new social networks that will in time fade away as well? Only time will tell.
