Now you can Digg [1] both Antiwar.com original articles or Antiwar.com Blog posts. Just look for the “Digg This!” link.

What’s Digg? [2].  Simply, users of Digg vote on stories.  The most popular recent stories make it to the front page:

Readers can view all of the stories that have been submitted by fellow users in the “digg all” section of the site. Once a story has received enough “diggs”, depending on the calculations performed by Digg’s algorithm, it appears on Digg’s front page. Should the story not receive enough diggs, or if enough users make use of the problem report feature to point out issues with the submission, the story will remain in the “digg all” area, where it may eventually be removed.

Articles are short summaries of stories on other websites with links to the stories, and provisions for readers to comment on the story. All content and access to the site is free, but registration is compulsory for certain elements, such as promoting (“digging”) stories, submitting stories and commenting on stories. Digg also allows for stories to be posted to a user’s blog automatically when he or she diggs a story.
