After Digg’s long fall, Betaworks acquired the site in July and put its News.me team in charge. Six weeks later, the new operators launched a complete overhaul of Digg. However, while interest in Digg had remained (a surprising amount, according to new CEO John Borthwick), the new site removed user access to old data, i.e. everything Digg users had ever posted to the old iterations of the site, Diggs, comments, articles, etc.
Yesterday, the team rectified that and actually seems to have gone beyond what is usually characteristic for new management or a deadpooled/acquired startup to do in terms of access to historic data. They launched the "Digg Archive," which gives users of the old site (i.e. before July 2012) a tool to retrieve their submissions, saved articles, and more (by JSON and CSV) and by partnering with Kippt and Pinboard to give old data a new home.
