For those people that aren’t familiar with Digg then you need to head over to How Stuff Works. They have written an article about How Digg Works and walk you through many of the features. They also talk about a few of the startup details like how Digg.com was started with just $1,000. Now Digg has 300,000 registered users and more than 1,000,000 unique visitors each day.
If you never saw the original Digg then checkout the screenshot below. I got it from Wikipedia and it really puts into perspective how far Digg has come. Now that Digg is so successful it seems like everyone is trying to startup their own Digg-like sites.
