Digg like sites for developers

The tech news aggregator Digg has rapidly risen in popularity in recent times eclipsing even Slashdot as the news for nerds. Just today they released V3.0 of their site where it expands from just tech news into other areas like Science, World & Business, Videos, Entertainment and Gaming. But none of these categories are related to developers and programming.

Anyway I stumbled upon a few digg clones for developers. Here they are:

There are also a few product/company related ones:

The first site dzone is from JavaLobby the popular Java site. The others belong to a same ‘kicks’ group. These sites look interesting but they tend to become useful only if there are large number of contributers and ‘diggers’. I do not thing any of these will become as popular as Digg but I hope at least one is successful in pointing to some good developers related articles/blogs. Check them out.

    Personally, I prefer dzone.com. The interface is easy, and it has links to/from an already popular destination I think Rick and the gang over there have done a great job of focusing this type of news. Digg has become so diluted, it’s difficult to find real news anymore.

    Yes, dzone.com looks promising.
