I've deliberately kept Feed Digest on a slow burn in terms of promotion till now. Making sure everyone who signs up ends up with a working digest has been key, along with ironing out any last minute bugs that didn't appear during the beta testing phase. Today I changed the RSS Digest page to point here, have mentioned Feed Digest in a few blog comments, and so I guess the promo stage really starts off here! So far we're up to 43 links on del.icio.us which is a good start, so thanks to all of you.

What I find really cool is that, no, the A-list bloggers are not ahead of the pack and, in fact, almost never are. It's the Long Tail who are the first to notice new things and comment on them. The only reason the A-list has a perception for being quick is because they're the most amplified.
