The link to this video was post here yesterday, but I liked it so much that I contacted the author to get some additional info.

I've published the article on the main site's front page, although the permanent link is:

Also, for the author's benefit and our own please click the DIGG button if you like the movie. Digg accounts are free and it really helps us.

Digg is a social bookmarking site of sorts that shares content that the site's visitors find noteworthy. Linking content on APC to Digg can potentially bring new visitors to APC that might benefit from the content we provide.

For the content providers, increased traffic means increased notoriety that can lead to additional paid gigs. For the publisher (APC) any sustained increase in traffic provides us the opportunity to attract new advertisers.

As you know we don't charge anything for the site content or the forum, (that's a claim that our competitors can't make). We don't run this site for the money, although we do want to keep it cost neutral. Anything we can do to attract higher sustained site traffic will help us meet that goal and continue to provide free content. I guess that helps site users too :)

So, giving site content a Digg helps others discover it (think of it as an extension of emailing a link - except to the whole world), helps the content creator, and the host site. Share the love.

All one has to do is Google the term "pilot personality" to see the power of Digg. Because Digg has it now (via the Digg buttons HSLD installed on the site), Google ranks it higher than even the original The Pilot Personality article on APC.
