From the Interview:
Don Dodge: How do you compare Memeorandum to Slashdot, Digg, Reddit, and others?
Gabe Rivera: For readers of Digg (or Reddit, and to some extent, Slashdot), I'd say Memeorandum is:
- More focused (on either "Tech" or "Politics")
- More expert/authority-driven
- Better organized, visually
Of course for a certain type of reader, Digg's quirkiness, developer
orientation, and community are all pluses. Many who aren't as interested in
these things prefer Memeorandum. Many use both sites. It's all good!
For the more ponderous set, I'd add that unlike all of those, Memeorandum
thrives on the web at large -- it doesn't keep its editors and content all
siloed and centralized. Viva la edge, yadda, yadda.
