Having built Digg, I have a pretty thick skin, this thread is pretty tame actually.

Good question, I'd love to do one, probably around SXSW or another conference -- I'll be in LA soon so I'll talk to Alex about it.

Steve, I was all for a URL shortener and tracking clicks to display counts on permalinks -- but I was always against framing content w/ a toolbar. The argument I was presented with (initially) was to displayed this bar for "power users" that opted in. Also, (not sure if you know this, was before your time) I killed the first toolbar that was born out of a dev hackathon.

A few months after Digg launched I remember hearing about reddit launching, I went to check out the site and I can't recall if I signed up or not... I think my first account was a couple years ago.

It was a great run, we needed a (liver) break after all those episodes. I'm sure Alex and I will do something again in the future.

I see Prager at least twice a week, Glenn every couple weeks.
