Google's Planning A Digg-Killer!

From a PaidContent interview with Josh Cohen of Google News:

There’s a lot more we can do on the social nature of news. I think Digg does a great job of that. There’s such a social nature to how information overall is consumed now. We have some things were working on in that area.

Sounds like Google’s planning a Digg-killer!  Or a Twitter-Facebook-type news distribution clone.  Or something.

(That’s not Josh Cohen at right, by the way.  You can see a fine-looking picture of Josh at PaidContent.  That’s the fine-looking Jay Adelson of Digg.  The man who would be killed.)

(Thanks to Mathew Ingram for spotting this).
