As some of you know, a new project called Sustain’d has been lauched to try to provide a more community-driven alternative to the current lds blog aggregators ( and Sustain’d is being modeled after

Anyway, Digg has received its own fair share of bad press over the past few days, over just how democratic (or undemocratic) it really is. So I offer these 2 articles as research for Sustain’d, and all of those who want to see a Digg-like (or more community-driven) option thrive.

It will be interesting to see how moderation is implemented on Sustain’d. I have spoken with Connor, and he seems to carry a good perspective about the whole thing. He’s gonna reject porn and blatantly mean-spirited anti-Mormon stuff, but he’s hoping to be more open to criticism and/or controversy than has been to date (i.e. he says he wouldn’t de-list Mormon Stories, for example, based on its past behavior. For those keeping tabs, has yet to re-add Mormon Stories to its site).

Anyway, it will be ineresting and fun to see where it all goes, but I’m looking forward to the journey.
