Digg CEO Matt Williams to Sit in Digg Dialogg Hot Seat

The latest installment of Digg Dialogg will feature someone quite familiar around Digg headquarters: CEO Matt Williams.

Questions can be submitted to Williams as comments on his post on the Digg Blog through Thursday at 9 a.m. PT, and the full interview will be posted Tuesday, Feb. 1, at noon. Williams wrote:

Over the past four months since I’ve joined Digg, our team has been committed to staying connected with our community. From San Francisco to Serbia, we’ve received tens of thousands of comments and suggestions. I’ve also had the chance to meet in person with many longtime users of Digg, through lunch gatherings and focus groups in a few different cities.

We’ve been listening closely to your feedback, and the result is a number of changes to Digg.com — such as reinstating buries, bringing back the Upcoming section, adding filters to browse images and videos more easily, and launching an improved mobile site. We’re hard at work on other features and site design changes you’ve requested, so stay tuned.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on how to make Digg.com great. Please keep it coming.

Next up: Ask me a question, any question! I’d like to engage with our user community more broadly than we’ve done in the past. We’re hosting a Digg Dialogg where I’m the one in the hot seat, answering the most popular questions submitted by the Digg community. We’re honored to have Chief TWiT (This Week in Tech) and all-around supergeek, Leo Laporte, conduct the interview.

In case you’re new to Digg Dialogg, here’s how it works. You have the opportunity to submit your own interview questions, as well as add to Digg other users’ questions. Then we take the questions that received the most Diggs and pose them to the featured guest. This time, it’s me. In the past, we’ve hosted all kinds of leaders and luminaries including President Bill Clinton, Tony Hawk, Trent Reznor, and Marissa Mayer.
