By 2009, it was one of the most heavily trafficked Web sites in the country.
Part of the charm is the site's randomness. Drawing from the interests of its visitors, the site brings together hard news and softer cultural pieces. It's not unusual to find a piece titled "Supreme Court to Hear Cases Involving Bad Advice on Plea Deals" right next to another with the headline "The Evolution of Katy Perry."
One of the more popular features of the site ,
a weekly show called Diggnation, features Rose himself. In it, Rose and a co-host peer into the latest tech and cultural news by looking at Digg's most popular stories.
The site and the show have not only made Rose rich (Digg's worth is by some estimates as much as $250 million), but also a rock star. A shrewd investor, he's dumped money into early versions of Twitter and Foursquare, and became a later stage investor in Facebook.

Incorporated in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was founded with the aim of instilling ethics and morals into the lives of young boys. A Scout is a "trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent," boy who, above all, strives to "be prepared" and "do his best." The highest order of these Boy Scouts are the Eagle Scouts, a rare group of young men who rise through the scouting ranks to earn 21 merit badges, serve for six months in a troop leadership position, and successfully complete a strict Eagle Scout board of review, among other requirements.
The first Eagle Scout to complete this training was 17-year-old Arthur R. Eldred, on September 2, 1912. Since then, more than 2 million Boy Scouts have earned the coveted rank. Here are some of the most famous of the honorable young men who made it to the top of the Boy Scouts program.
