I’ve become a recent fan of Digg.com as an additional source of information. Digg is a source of news aggregation where its members submit stories for review of importance by other members.

Instead of an editor picking what the members read or how important it is, other members vote and this drives placement.

One of the great features about the site is that it will show you where the masses are reading news. It gives a count of the number of members that have read an article. You can “spy” on the movement of news as well, watching a real time counter of the articles and how many times they have been read.

Any information maven worth their salt, needs to check into Digg and start capturing their news a little closer to the source.

From a traders perspective, there was some speculation a few weeks back that Digg was a potential prospect buy for Yahoo.
