Goodbye Digg

To remind us that nothing on the Internet is forever, the once giant site known as Digg has been dying a slow death since a redesign. Digg Sells Itself for Pathetic Pocket Change: $500,000. This is pretty low considering they were once offered $200 million from Google and turned it down. The article mentions other companies that were once big but drifted away like CompUSA and MySpace, but neglects to mention my favorite example in AOL. Of course, perhaps that's a company making a comeback. Only time will tell.
