Top 1000 Diggers as of 2007/05/23

In other Digg news, the last 13 stories from this blog that have been submitted to Digg have all been buried. This includes posts about TubeStop, Twits Like Me, the Digg Top Users list, ScribeFire, and Wii-specific Web design. (Contrast this search page with this search page.) This means one of three things:

  1. Everything I write is lame.
  2. There is a group of Digg users specifically burying content from my site.
  3. eFinke.com is on some sort of Digg blacklist and is being automatically buried by the system.

I’m leaning towards #2, but I don’t know how they would track submissions from my site since the only way to do that has been broken for months.

Own a piece of history

For the low, low price of $189,900, you could own this piece of Web software history:

This is the very building where I worked on such projects as Slashdotter, Netscape Navigator 9, OPML Support for Firefox, ScribeFire, the Digg Top Users list, and most recently, Twits Like Me. If you act now, I’ll even throw in the very desk that I sit at while I work my programming magic. Deals like this don’t come along every day, especially when you consider that I was named as Time Magazine’s 2006 Man of the Year!

This introductory pricing won’t last long, so you’d better hurry up and make an offer.

Twits Like Me

Everybody and their mother has written a Twitter-based app, but I haven’t seen any so far that try and help you find other Twitterers that you’d find interesting, so I made one.

It’s called “Twits Like Me” – just enter your Twitter screenname in the search box, and the Twits Like Me search engine will try and find other users that Twitter about the same things that you do. I’ve found that at least a few of the ten users it returns are interesting enough that I’ll start following them, but it is still in its infancy, so your satisfaction may vary.

Twits Like Me

Twits Like Me is constantly updating its search index, so the results should become more relevant over time. (You can get information on updates to Twits Like Me by subscribing to the Twits Like Me RSS feed or the main RSS feed for my blog.)

Oh, and thanks to the guys at Twitterholic for unknowingly providing a design. ;-)
