Manipulate Digg for the Glory of Cycling!

Universal Sports wants everyone to Digg their coverage, and I suppose it wouldn't be such a terrible thing to have links to broadcasts of bike races made available on one of the most heavily trafficked pages on the Internet.

It only takes about 50-60 Diggs to get on the front page of the Enviroment or Science sections, which I think this here Cafe could churn out fairly easily. I think the bar for the Sports section may be higher, but hey, it couldn't hurt to try, right?

When I was pursing money instead of awesomeness last summer, I found that online content producers form cabals based around group Skype chats to vote up their stories.

Someone would publish an article online, and then IM a Digg link to the chat, so everyone could vote it up. It's a fairly decent way to generate traffic to things, because once they make the front page of a section, million of bored cube farmers start checking them out.

If anyone's interested/intimiately familiar with Skype (I tend to avoid it) sound off in the comments, and lets see what we can get together.

(Oh, and if you don't know what Digg is, don't tell anyone!  Just check out the Wikipedia entry and their homepage and act like you've been using it for years.)
