Kevin from Cool Tools has a good post on "consensus web filters" -- Digg, reddit, and the like, including a few I haven't used.
Kevin notes the proliferation of sites serving this collabrative filtering function, and the innovation which has gone into the space in a relatively short time:
I imagine in the near future there will be many dozens, if not hundreds, of tweaks on this scheme. Readers will gravitate to a formula that suits their own personal taste. Inevitably, there'll be some meta-operation that will seek out the overlaps among all the collab-voting sites and extract its own meta-list. Or, eventually, you'll be able to tweak your own mix of others' votes to roll your own collabvote site.
