Diggin The Labs!

Check out Digg Labs! Here you will find two new methods to check out the "broader and deeper views" of activity in the Digg world. Since information is always zooming thru Digg, the Digg team saw this as both a good and bad situation; good due to the high activity rate but bad since so much information was flying by with out people being able to acknowledge or appreciate it fully. So with that said here are two interactive, great visual projects currently in the Digg Lab: Stack and Swarm.

Stack - "Shows Diggs occurring in real time on up to 100 stories at once." Look for tetris like diggs falling and stacking up on popular stories. The brighter the story the more Diggs that are associated with it.

Swarm - "Digg Swarm draws a circle for stories as they're dugg." Stories that seemed to get swarmed, will also get bigger and colors will change.

Both of these visuals have 3 modes: All Activity, Popular and newly submitted stories.

Very cool visually, something worth checking out!
