FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA—AUGUST 15, 2008—NVIDIA today announced that Diggnation will go live from NVISION® 08, the three-day visual computing mega-event. Diggnation is a weekly tech/web culture show based on the top digg.com social bookmarking news stories presented by co-hosts Alex Albrecht and Kevin Rose.
Diggnation Live will be hosted on Tuesday, August 26th starting at 6:30 P.M. PST at the Center of Performing Arts in San Jose, California. Attendance is first come, first served, and free for all Diggnation fans!
“With its tens of thousands of passionate fans Diggnation has become a phenomenon like no other on the web,” said Rob Csongor, vice president of corporate marketing, NVIDIA. “We're excited to bring the passion of Diggnation to NVISION. In true Diggnation fashion, Alex and Kevin will talk about the biggest stories from the Internet, the real world, Hollywood culture, and the world of visual computing. We can’t wait!"
Alex Albrecht has participated in the entertainment industry for six years. He founded and directed the popular, Los Angeles-based improv comedy troupe, The Misfit Toys. The group was featured in Stuff Magazine and on MTV. Alex subsequently appeared in a number of national television commercials for companies such as Volkswagen, Domino’s, and Dell. After a chance meeting with a TechTV producer at a wedding, Alex landed the co-hosting role on TechTV's The Screen Savers. It was at TechTV that he met Kevin Rose, and one of the most successful Internet television partnerships was born.
Kevin Rose is the founder and chief architect of Digg. He oversees all aspects of the management and development of the Web site. 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 developed a strong community following. Kevin is also a co-founder of Revision3, where, as a member of the board, he provides strategic direction to the company.
