"We at Digg couldn't think of a better partner to get to where we need to go," said Jay Adelson, the company's chief executive officer. "They're a young ad service, they're innovative, they're willing to work with us on the cutting edge." For three years, Microsoft will deliver ads — mostly small, contextually relevant text links — on Digg.com.
