How to increase personalization on Digg (of course, only when I’m logged in):
* If I digg a story from a particular user, give more weight to the ranking of their next story
* If I bury a story from a particular user, give less weight to the ranking of their next story
* Let me assign ratings to users, to influence the weight of their votes
* Allow custom created categories (ie. Yankees News — I don’t care about the Mets)

Also, there has to be a better way to get more current stories onto the first page or two of a topic. The top stories under Sports are several days old and irrelevant… Netscape has addressed this with their paid navigators. How about developing content partnerships to add new stories to the Upcoming Stories page? (ie. the top stories from nytimes, bbc, espn, etc.)
