Every single one of these kids probably did that awesome thing all kids do, where they half poop their pants in excited surprise, and they half looked around like, "Okay, so NOW what do you want us to do?" 

Also, at 2:28, that little boy is like a little man.

If you haven't heard the news, I'm thrilled to announce that Digg is now in the hands of Betaworks (makers of bitly, chartbeat, news.me, and other great products). I've been a big fan of John Borthwick ( http://foundation.kr/11/ ) for awhile now and I'm excited to see where his team takes the product!

To the Digg community and staff. Thank you. Without all your hard work there would be no Digg. You were the first community to embrace social media/news and it was you that made the site. You were pioneers and truly changed the way we vote on and share content forever. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Lastly, I want to thank our investors. David Sze from Greylock has been there for me through good times and bad, always supportive, always helpful, always willing to meetup for tea and figure things out. He's been a mentor, board member, and friend. I can't say enough good things about Greylock and the world class organization they run. Also a huge thank you to Highland Capital (for being great board members and helping us scale during our growth phase), Andreessen Horowitz, Mike Maples, Brett Bullington, Ron Conway, Jay Adelson, Omidyar, and the slew of others that helped put Digg on the map.

Digg on,

KR

Story
Tagline
I'm an ad man that's always wrestling with what that actually means. I'm a husband and father that puts that responsibility above all else. I'm a member of the human race that's always asking, "what the heck are we doing here?"
Introduction
Oran Parker is the Owner and Director of Parker Brand Creative Services in Sulphur, Louisiana, where he has to think on his feet and use his creative juice to crank out the goods.

"Creating great, effective advertising," he says, "means stepping into the mind of the audience, putting their shoes on, eating what they eat, standing in the same lines they stand in, watching the shows they watch...heck, man...you've gotta catch their cold. You really have to try your best to get outside of yourself and become an objective observer—all while participating—seeing the world through the consumers' eyes, right inside their likes & dislikes, their needs & desires. You have to be part artist, part carpenter, part writer, part fool, part sage, part psychologist...and almost 100% creative problem solver." 

His "holy cow", personal motto—"Don't wait! when you don't know what to do to get started,...just do something."

This is a great Friday night fallback for us, especially when we don't want to cook. I ask my wife, "where do you want to eat?" She usually says, "popcorn shrimp from 'The Boiling Point.'" Okay. Good enough for me.
