Digg reports they’ve reached an impressive 1 million user accounts. (If you’re a Diggr and planning on being in the San Francisco area “mid April,” possibly April 19, you’re being invited to a party in that post, so check it out.)
Digg doesn’t mention, however, how many of the accounts are duplicates, suspended or inactive. Michael Arrington (and some commenters on the post) openly admits that at least 10 of those 1 million accounts are his. Time for my favorite smiley: :\ .
Reddit’s also in the news today, finally beginning to see some of the same bad press that Digg made famous (and then buried). Paul McNamara at NetworkWorld calls them a meritocracy and points out that, at the time of his writing, 14 of the 15 top items on Reddit were calling for Bush’s impeachment.
