Geeks Will Not Be Silenced: Breaking: Digg Riot in Full Effect Over Pulled HD-DVD Key Story: Digg had a bad night tonight. Or a good night, I guess, depending on how you look at it.
The power of Web 2.0 is in full effect over at Digg, where users are revolting over Digg’s decision to pull a story (that netted over 15,000 diggs) and reportedly boot a user for posting the HD-DVD AACS Processing Key number, which would allow someone to crack the copy protection on an HD-DVD.
The front page of Digg consists entirely of stories flaunting the number or criticizing Digg for its actions. We’re not going to post the number, obviously, but there’s a screencap of the ensuing chaos after the jump.
