DuggBack into the Digg Trail

Digg fans are getting their own Wayback Machine type mashup for locating lost Digg stories. DuggBack is a site that helps you find removed stories using a mix of mirrors and caches. The service uses the Digg API, and mirror services from DuggMirror, Coral CDN, Wayback Machine and DotCache, and web cache services from Google, Yahoo, Live Search and Ask.

The site has been running live for 4 days now. In the site’s About section creator Torsten writes that the service will be ad supported and that DuggBack was created with no outside funding. Digg recently announced an open API, and has spawned mashups like ‘Who Is Digging You?’. Another geeky tool for Digg’s 1.2 million users!
