Next month I will be traveling a decent amount because there are some great online marketing conferences that are taking place.
If you are social media guy or an SEO and want to work with me, here is your chance. I am looking to hire talented individuals who can crank fast and work hard. Whether your a newbie or an experienced tech geek, we are looking to hire here at ACS. The most important thing is that you need to be willing to work in house here in Orange County California.

Thoof is a new service that aims to bring you news stories and blog posts custom-tailored for you. It might be easiest to think of it as a similar idea to how Netflix or iTunes gives you personalized movie and music recommendations based on your rental and purchase histories – Thoof does the same thing with stories but does so by keeping track of what you’ve clicked on to read in the past on the site.
Digg uber-user MrBabyMan (over 1,000 frontpage stories now!) had an interesting observation today – he wondered if certain websites might be preparing stories as ‘Digg Exclusives’ and making sure they get posted to Digg before they actually go live on their site’s main page. He noticed this situation with the Mac rumor site AppleInsider today.
One of the aspects largely overlooked in Google’s recently unveiled Hot Trends is the prominent link on a topic’s page to ‘Discuss with others’. While the feature is currently flawed, and as such is basically useless, it could signal a move by Google towards unifying their services with a more social approach.
After reading the comments from Neil’s post on burying within Digg it seems that many of you are in favor of Digg opening up their bury data and making it transparent. In fact it seems to me that even those who didn’t like the post may be in favor of this because some truly believe the burying is legit – and this would prove it one way or the other once and for all.
