Digg 3.0

The 3.0 update of popular social tech news site Digg went online today. I've been reading Digg for a while now and have gradually been drawn into actually participating -- mostly in the form of burying stupid comments -- which is saying something as I normally like to lurk. The big news with Digg 3.0 is that they've branched out from tech and added more categories: Science, World & Business, Videos, Entertainment and Gaming each with sub-categories of their own. Given that Digg has proven itself to be a huge force for promoting stories and sending traffic, I'm hoping with its music sub-category it'll be able to draw the sort of attention to new artists that it draws to technology stories.
