A Year of Digg: Gas 2.0’s Ten Most Dugg Stories of 2008

Editor’s note: Today we inaugurate the first ever best-of Gas 2.0 series with our most Dugg stories of 2008. During the rest of the week look for the most up-voted reddit, most Stumbled, and most viewed stories of year as well. As a special bonus, we’ll finish off the week by handing out the first ever (yet sure to be highly coveted) Gas 2.0 Post of the Year Award.


Ah, Digg. That beautiful beast. There are some who say she even controls the internet as we know it. In her all-knowing and random wisdom, she giveth and she taketh away. Actually, if truth be known, she mostly taketh. Yet when she does giveth, man does she giveth in a huge way. For that we pay her tribute by exposing the loins of her Gas 2.0 grace. Uhhh… ick. Sorry.

So, before I make myself sick, let me present you with a stroll down the Gas 2.0 memory lane.
