Kevin Rose
Kevin Rose is the founder and chief architect of digg, where he oversees all aspects of the management and development of the digg web site. He is also a co-host of Diggnation, a weekly video podcast based on digg.com news stories and content that consistently ranks as one of the top podcast downloads from the Apple iTunes Music Store.

Kevin started digg in September 2004 as a personal project. His initial idea was to conduct a social experiment in how masses of users could control and promote news and other content on the Web, without external editorial control. After a very short time, he realized the power of his idea, as digg was becoming a resource for breaking news stories and developing a strong user following.

Prior to founding digg, Rose was a co-host of the popular technology television programs Attack of the Show on the G4 Network and The Screen Savers on TechTV. During Rose’s tenure at The Screen Savers, a live TV program focusing on computers and technology, it was the highest rated show on TechTV, reaching 55 million households.

Before working at TechTV, Rose worked for several technology startups as well as for the U.S. Department of Energy.
