You will notice some new buttons added to Mental Blog in general and to new posts in particular. One is Digg and the other is Diigo.
Without going into a lot of detail, let me say that they're both sort of similar in intent (which might explain why the names are so similar.) Call them "social networking" or, in the case of Diigo "social annotation". Part of their purpose is to find interesting articles and sites on the web and to tell others about them.
The reason they're on the blog now is because I have registered with these sites. And I'd like you to do me a favour. If you are a member of one of these, please check out the posts on Mental Blog and if you find one that catches your fancy, click on the Diggit or Add to Diigo button.
There's a Diggit button in the sidebar at the top. You see the big fat 0? That's cuz nobody's dugg anything here so far (which isn't all that surprising since I've only begun this part of the adventure.) But I'd like to change that number to 1 at least. I could do it myself, that's allowed to a limited extent, but let's just say Larry's modest. So, if you're a member of one these groups (or Technorati), help me out please.
And if you're not a member, check them out. I'd say they're not for everybody, but then who am I to say? Here's the link for Diigo. And here's the link for Digg.
