The Wall Street Journal Gets Cozy With Digg

There’s a new sheriff in town at the venerable Wall Street Journal, and they certainly seem willing to try new things.

Like the New York Times
, the WSJ is now adding Digg buttons to articles. And clicks from Digg get the added benefit of bypassing the paywall.

Links are supposedly being added now, although I can’t find any articles that include the digg button yet.

The WSJ also has links from blog search/discovery engine Sphere on their site, which creates a pop up window with related content.

– good screen shot here.
