Although I’m not a fan of Digg, I nevertheless appreciate the following quote (originally in Business 2.0 magazine and more recently referenced in ComputerWorld) from Jay Adelson, Digg’s CEO: “A lot of companies are afraid to touch their original technology, to reconsider the premise on which they started the business. But when you stop doing that, that’s when you get lapped.”
