DaDig: 24 hours of Tweets and posts boiled down for you

Today, we're going to try something new. A lot of folks new to social media complain about not having time to follow all the information services out there. And, often the time spent requires a lot of digging around to separate the wheat from the chaff.

So as an experiment, we're starting DaDig - a daily digest of social media and networking posts, comments, emails of interest to the Greenville business community - and perhaps beyond the city. Although events, etc., are geographically limited to the Upstate SC area.

Obviously, this is a subjective analysis so you have to take that with a grain of salt. We are really interested in your ideas and comments and whether or not this is a useful, fun or interesting tool for you. And also let us know if there's a person or organization you think we should follow.

So here's the first edition of DaDig.
