Artichoke RecipeIn its humble beginnings, Digg was a tech-stories site at heart.

The heart has changed over the years, and recently politics have been dominant, appealing to the hearts and minds of the Internet’s Web 2.0 users.

Now, I have to admit that it is refreshing to see something other than the Huffington Post on the front page, but has Digg really become a site about edibles?  A recipe?  I clicked through expecting something different, something shocking, something humorous or different or ANYTHING other than a straight up, simple recipe.  What I found was a recipe.  Nothing special (other than that it is a nice one that I will probably try myself) but a recipe nonetheless.

Digg, what’s happening to you, old friend?

To be fair, here is the recipe itself, which like I said, looks delicious.  Just not sure if it’s social news.
