I haven’t really checked digg out in a really, really long time. I rarely hang around too long when I do. I did notice however the lack of tech stories not only on the front page but in the queue. The decline of tech on Digg started a long time ago when they started alienating their core users, the infamous “top digg user” list that they trumpeted for such a long time until they decided to disown the whole concept of ranking users and thereby taking away their main incentive to contribute.
Metrics went down significantly until their recent resurgence as a simple news aggregation service for anything and I’m sure it’ll continue to rise. Still feel a bit of nostalgia for the old community but I know I wont find it anywhere on Digg.
