    Hey Neil (and Muhammad),
    Just wondering if I could get your guys’ expert opinion on the current state of Digg (a week after the turmoil)? I use Digg on a regular basis, but I am not a power user. I’d be interested to hear what the current atmosphere is like and what the short-term future looks like.
    Much appreciated.
