Diigo name origin

Several people have asked us how we come up with our rather unusal Diigo name. Well, honestly, it’s “trial and error” while we tried to come up with a combination of names that may fit our vision. Of course, the domain name search! That’s the hardest part of all…

Then, one day, “Diigo” popped up during one of our brain-storming sessions. It’s perfect and the domain name is available! Its abbreviation stands for “Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff.” Visually, the two ii’s also symbolize people in a community. Plus, an unique & easy name to remember!

So Diigo was born. No relationship to Digg what so ever, but just a nice name that fits our vision perfectly! Let us know what you think.
