    Default Phoronix Interviews Digg -- Ask A Question

    While Mark Shuttleworth's interview with Phoronix has been delayed due to his busy schedule, I got some other excellent news to pass along. Phoronix will be interviewing Digg's developers!

    In this interview we will primarily be focusing upon Digg's use of Debian Linux and open-source technologies (PHP, MySQL, etc...), and other things related to the Linux and OSS world.

    Post a question and we'll include it in the interview if it sounds good

    If you may, also ask which admin apps they use to keep up with all of the crazy digg stuff.

    Maybe you can post the list of questions you are planning to ask, and then we can help you edit or better them. Thanks.

    Did Digg choose OSS for philosophy or TCO?
    What would they do differently if they could do it all again?
    Any plans for Digg v2 (or v3, I suppose)?
    Any thoughts on the concept of a "semantic" web?
    How do they see Digg interfacing in the wider world, from Google to news providers themselves?
    Does Digg inform its users with new information, or simply re-circulate popular trends?
    What has Digg given back to the OSS world?
    Are free software and free speech inextricably linked?
    What is Linux missing?

    First things I thought of, more to come.
