Playing about with Digg

Writing about web page

For the last two day's I've been mucking about with adding links to Digg (and to Press Releases.

Why bother I don't hear you ask! Well, the story about Sleep deprivation and obesity had about 2000 hits yesterday – half of these came from and BoingBoing (which picked up the story from Digg).

I think that demonstrates the value of these services in terms of communications activity.

So, to make life a bit easier I've added a few links to the Press Release. Firstly a link that lets you submit a story to Digg. Secondly a link that lets you submit a story to Finally a counter that tells you how many people Dugg this story and a button that let's you register a vote too!

Unfortunately this last only seems to be working in Firefox, which is a pain, but I will endevour to resolve this for IE next week.

I have warned my colleagues in the office not to Digg their own stories as this would be evil. Hot coals have been prepared just in case!

Warwick Podcasts – Critics choice in the Independent

Following on from our listing in the Guardian I've just found out Warwick Podcasts made Critics choice in the Independent on wednesday.

What a great week this is turning into.

So, Robert Moss, wherever you are – thanks for the listing!

Next up – can we crack the right wing press?
