Digg Layoffs, Huge Solar Plant Approval, Relevancy vs. Privacy

Close of Business is a new video series that we're trying out. The idea is simple: at 5 p.m. (or thereabouts), we post a quick video summarizing the top three news stories of the day -- and give you one new Twitter or Tumblr to follow. Some of them we'll have written about; others will just be what people were talking about on the Internet.

Your Twitter account of the day: @nbj914 aka Nicholas Jackson, your Atlantic Technology channel producer.

Blythe Solar Project in Riverside County Gets Federal Approval [Los Angeles Times]

A Web Pioneer Profiles Users by Name [Wall Street Journal]
