Digg founder launches tech newsletter

The founder of popular social news website Digg on Monday launched an email newsletter promising video interviews, product reviews, "rants" and early peeks at new Internet offerings.

Subscribers who pay 3.99 dollars a month will be the first to receive "Foundation," crafted by Kevin Rose, Digg founder turned angel investor and host of video podcast "Diggnation," which is broadcast online by Revision 3.

"I plan on releasing rants, product reviews, rumors, and occasionally sending out early access to pre-launch websites," Rose said in an email message to followers of the "fforward" podcast.

Foundation videos will be available free at Revision3.com, iTunes, and at Rose's blog a month after subscribers receive ad-free versions in the newsletters, according to Rose.
