Person Details

Update

Legend has it that Owen Byrne was hired by Digg founder Kevin Rose on Elance to create the PHP code behind the original digg site for a cost of $200.

The truth is that he was paid more than that, he had equity in the company and he helped Kevin Rose think through the business in the early days.

His code was considered bug free enough in December 2004 and the beta site of digg.com was released receiving 578 registered users in the first week.
