When Pligg, a popular open source Digg clone, was launched, countless sites popped up on the map, wanting to be India’s Digg.Â With time, the most lame ones have gotten weeded out. But that still doesnt deter others from launching a Digg clone even today.
Now that Reddit is open sourcing their code, I’m hedging my bets to the possibility that within the next 1-3 months, we’ll see a lot of Reddit clones pop up for India related content as well. The only hindrance towards Reddit adoption and deployment is that it is Python based as opposed to the popular PHP.
None the less, keep a lookout and expect to hear about HumReddit, BharatNews, IndoNews, Indyanews or something similar in the next few months.
