Shawn is incredibly creative, he wrote code to follow the Digg Spy page for his forum. The page named DigitalPoint Forums Spy has a play and pause button at the top. When in play mode, it shows you in real-time, the new posts as they happen. Kinda neat to watch on such an active community. The tool is AJAX driven of course, so that makes it even cooler, we all love AJAX.
Shawn said it only works in Firefox and Safari at this moment. He is working on making it Internet Explorer compatible.
This is one more reason why Shawn's community is so loyal, proud and constantly growing.
