Don't have time to read this right now, but I should at least skim it later.
I found this link on a Digg/Reddit clone named Fyynd, http://www.fyynd.com. Since the subreddit re-rank, Reddit seems to be lacking tech stories on the front page. Fyynd moves a lot slower, but seems be a little more harder-core techie. (For the moment, anyway.)
(I find the proliferation of intentionally misspelled domain names to be mildly amusing. Do you think I should start up a collaborative link-sharing site named "Nooz"? Whoops, already taken!)
