Digg headlines for the weekend (6-8th Sept.)

I’m working on finalizing my reply to Axel Bruns’ article about the networked model of the public sphere. At one point I wasn’t sure if I had time to do the follow-up on headlines, then I made a compromise (if that’s an acceptable excuse). So, the headlines from the previous weekend – but only from Digg this time, I wonder if you can spot a trend there.
