Rose no longer Diggs his startup

Hard to believe but it looks like Kevin Rose has resigned from Digg.com and is pursuing a new venture. No news on what the new project is but the word is he is currently securing funding.

While some would say they saw this coming with the changes that have been going on inside Digg over the past year (most noticalbly the departure of CEO Jay Adelson) it will still be hard to think of Rose as no longer apart of the start up that put him on the map and made him the poster boy for the second generation of web innovation.

With it's founder and biggest advocate gone who knows what the future brings for Digg which has been struggling since it's peak in 2007/2008 when Google came close to purchasing the company for $200 million.
