It’s no doubt when it comes to social media and web video, YouTube takes the cake. Currently within top 5 Alexa rank and also owned by the #1 search engine and website online, YouTube has everything backing it. Google doesn’t control the monopoly though, there are so many cool video streaming services out there each with their own to offer.
In a recent blog post entitled simply “Update from Jay“, it has been officially announced that Jay Adelson will be stepping down as Digg’s CEO after 5 prosperous and amazing years. Jay has done an amazing job as CEO, and I firmly believe Digg wouldn’t hold it’s current success status today if it wasn’t for his ideas and inspiration.
Yep, I finally decided to add some of those updates I had planned on rolling out so long ago! I’ve been meaning to add author info to the posts on Inside the Webb for a while, just haven’t had time. Well I finally found some time, and I’m glad I did!

I am extremely fond of the new social news script Pligg CMS. I have been following it since early release, and updating Pligg sites used to be very difficult. However from instructions from this wiki, you can use TortoiseSVN to control the version and upgrades of your Pligg site with ease.
New URL Shortening services hit the web every week it seems. I can remember not too long ago when TinyURL was just starting up, and that hit with a huge bang. Ever since then, there have been countless creations of URL shorteners (where some even provided stats). However, only a select few have really succeeded to hit mainstream popularity and be of any use.
Digging through the internet for your favorite ROM can be a frustrating process. Some sites can’t be trusted, others just throw you around in loops to find exactly what you’re looking for.
