Indeed I Have Read It

This newspaper from 1865 appears to be very similar in concept to a modern site on the internet that I used to visit. Unfortunately, this site 'Digg', lost most of its users when it was poorly redesigned - I heard they all went to another site but I have no idea where.

Where do all my readers find their news online?

  1. hello gov'nor!
    so, in 1865 yes and no were called "YEA" and "NAY".
    so, what do they do? tick yea or nay and post it on the fridge? How does it work?
    And one more moral
    -All dudes dressed up like A.Lincoln and all ladies dressed up as Queen Victoria and only cats reminded as cats;)

  8. This is very cool. Shows how little we change as people throughout time. (Same sorts of opinions and same sorts of ideas.)

  9. Reddit is where all the Digg people went. Digg wasn't abandoned just because of the redesign, it was also abandoned when they got caught gaming their front page.
