Recently Dugg on the Sidebar

Digg is not the best source of news, but it certainly is amusing. Lots of fun YouTube videos and an occasional interesting blog post or article. Comments are usually good for a laugh too. Users submit links and other users digg it up or bury it down. For the most part I only monitor the popular stories.

I threw together a quick-and-dirty WordPress plugin to show the last 10 things that I dugg in the sidebar. You can do it by sourcing some Javascript from digg (it just does document.write()s – no JSON). Rather than rely on that, I curl it every few minutes and source the local copy instead.

A quick scan of the current headlines makes me quite happy.
