DIGG.com -- what do people online really DIGG??? Hollywood2020.blogs.com blogger Joyce Schwarz thought it was time to look at the top stories on DIGG.com for the first of this month....Nov 1, 2006....it gives us some Zeitgeist to what the DIGG audience really 'diggs' online -- puns all intended of course....
What's so fascinating about the eBAY post is that the guy (called Valleywag.com) posted his IM (instant message string) from a pal working on-site on the eBay campus...so it was an insider report...probably even better than the NBC news got -- link included...
And here's the IM thread of them telling me a few minutes ago.
friend: Crazy shit! A bunch of us were there working late and all of a sudden BOOOOOOM!!!!
I ran outside looking for a plane crash.
But is from inside the building. Some are saying it was a transformer.
Windows were blown out.
Here's the link to that whole post...I always wonder why the TV and Internet news can't do the same thing...why can't we get Instant Message reports or Blackberry Text messages etc from people n the scene of the news...http://www.valleywag.com/tech/ebay/ebay-building-bombed-exclusive-ims-from-an-ebayer-inside-the-building-211579.php
