Slashdot vs Digg
In the last few months there have been a few articles from Wired, Techcrunch, and others predicting how digg is gaining over slashdot. Let's ignore traffic statistics for a moment and see the quality of content. Digg is a nice democratic model where the most important news trickles up trhough the support of dedicated diggers. slashdot on the other hand is a oligopoly, run in the same style as a newspaper or magazine. What appears in slashdot rests solely in the hands of a few. As a result, I find the news items in digg more interesting and varied than that in slashdot. Digg is also a new generation website with a nicer interface and good utilities like spellchecker. That said, I think slashdot is still a more interesting place than digg, and the reason is only one - comments. Any item in slashdot has way more comments than digg. The quality of comments in slashdot are way better: slashdot comments are often well thought out, long, witty, informative, or all; digg comments on the other hand are short and uninteresting. Until digg attracts such interesting comments, slashdot will continues to rule.

Slashdot and Digg are based on "authority on subject" concept, one gained over a period of time, and the other a "social" model.

Slowly but surely, advertising on the Internet is undergoing a fundamental change. Increasingly, Curiosity contributes to attention and drives web traffic.

With the success of the MilllionDollarHomepage concept, it is obvious that there are a lot of users who want to go to a single place and look for products and services. Marketing a company through pixels is the new trend that has attracted a lot of online visitors to the company's site.

In the rapidly changing Internet landscape, Web2.0 companies are riding the wave. Traditional form of marketing is dead. Word of mouth, referrals, Blogs have taken over in the Web2.0 world. In the new forms of disruptive marketing, pixel marketing is breaking traditional barriers of scale. Securing pixels at the right location at the right time is enabling Web2.0 firms to spread the buzz about their technology,Product / service.
