Joining the Disqus-tion
I added the Disqus comments plug-in to Online Media Cultist last night. I hope it provides value for everyone who is kind enough to leave comments. For a few anxious moments I thought I’d managed to lose all of comments made here since March of last year, but managed to resurrect them soon enough.
Please let me know what you think, if you like it or hate it, and anything else you’d like to see here at the OMC. The one downside I’m looking at from the start is the fact that e-mail notification of new comments to posts that you’ve commented on is not a default option. In my view, that’s one of the best ways to easily and efficiently rejoin conversations that you’ve already taken the time and energy to join.
However, I hope the upsides of Disqus outweigh that one minor note. It’s also pretty cool that Friendfeed aggregates Disqus comments. The Friendfeed-Disqus combination alone could become a mightily powerful force, a piece of a larger story I published a little while ago.
