Digg is rolling out their Digg Dialogg service, which basically is a Q&A with select people, where the questions are submitted by the Digg users, and then dugg up or down, with the winning ones behind actually asked. It is Digg for questions to a specific person, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the moment. Kevin Rose explains:
The concept is simple – we identify a featured guest that you will be able to submit questions to (text or video) which the Digg community Diggs up or down. We’ll pose the top questions to the guest during a live interview. Featured guests will represent thought leaders and tastemakers across diverse topics including technology luminaries, environmentalists, entrepreneurs, musicians and filmmakers.
The Digg Dialogg is part of Digg’s coverage of the US presidential election, and a partnership with CNN’s iReport. It is likely that Digg Dialogg will stick around after the election is over as well.
