In summary, Digg and del.icio.us are news websites that use social bookmarking, blogging, and user-submitted content to create a democratic editorial system.

Digg and del.ious.us:

Are news websites with an emphasis on technology and science articles. It combines social bookmarking, blogging, and syndication with a form of non-hierarchical, democratic editorial control. News stories and websites are submitted by users, and then promoted to the front page through a user-based ranking system. This differs from the hierarchical editorial system that many other news sites employ.

There are two icons on top of posts now where you can submit interesting threads to these news websites. It takes 10 seconds to register if you're not already and can really help bring fresh traffic into PF.
