Jay Adelson Diggs the A.P.

In the ruckus about the Associated Press’s campaign to prevent blogs and other Internet sites from using what it considers too much of its material, one of the biggest sites that could be affected is Digg, the news site where readers determine that’s worth reading. So I figured that Jay Adelson, Digg’s chief executive, would be as up in arms about the A.P. as the rest of the blogosphere.
“While I definitely love the idea of syndication and democratization of information, I tend to sympathize with the A.P.,” he told me. “It is their decision how their content gets used.”
