I’ve written previously about using various tools to create a “feed river” of aggregated content that is related or of interest. Diggdot.us is a technology related feed river site that is customizable to a degree, and includes updated articles others are blogging about on Digg, are getting mentioned on Slashdot, and the most popular links on Del.icio.us.

You could add these different feeds in your aggregator and look at them separately, so I am not sure I see too much value in the site…. this looks mainly like an attempt to craft a slight spin on RSS repackaging to get folks to view Google ads. A feed is available, which I added to my Bloglines account under the “geek” category. 🙂
