OK this part is cool…
We now have an aggregator which combines Digg, Slashdot, and del.icio.us/popular onto one page. Not only does it combine them into a unified format without all fluff, but it also eliminate duplicates (is this human powered then?). Funny things is, this is the first case I’ve seen of Web 2.0 stripped down to Web 1.0…
There’s no provision for comments, and more importantly, no diggdot.us RSS?!? Heck I could roll my own better version of this using any other feed aggregator!
Just get direct RSS feeds from the three sites and toss them into your own RSS newsreader. This service should really be for Web 1.0 folks who haven’t ventured into the RSS domain.
UPDATE: Jeff (who should be a Diggdot developer) informs us that the RSS feed was put up there a couple days ago (http://diggdot.us/rss) and says the value add for using their feed instead of three individual feeds is that they remove the duplicates. They also intentionally stripped the comments so users can quickly see the popular discussions.
