I'm shocked… SHOCKED… that something built by Kevin Rose wasn't a success. That's completely unprecedented.

@LauraGlu I don't get the cult of personality around that guy. Seems completely incapable of building products/companies people want.

@RodBegbie I think people loved Digg for a long time. It was reasons other than his product idea that got in the way.

@LauraGlu It was the company he built that was the problem, both in terms of employees & investors. All part of that cult of personality.

@RodBegbie That's a separate point from not building products people like to use. But whatever, snark away dude, not sure the benefit.

@RodBegbie Oink was built by a team of 7 individuals. It isn't one single person's failure or success. cc/ @LauraGlu
