let the good comments roll with diskus!

I have to admit to being a comment poor blog.  And I’m remiss in not putting akismet and disqus on here sooner.  Tonight akisment gave 32,000 plus spam comments a beating.  They’re gone.  Room now for your comments and disqus should make things a lot more interesting.

I got turned on to the disqus comment system by Shey Smith on his most excellent blog, http://sheysmith.com and got really motivated to install it when I heard Leo Laporte and Amber Macarthur rolling in the aisles over this on their net@nite podcast broadcast live today.  It helped push me more that Dave Winer, grandaddy of rss and blogs, is using this as well.

Disqus brings video comments, along with a community of commenters, better comment formatting, and much more.  And the wordpress plugin install was as easy as could be.

Shey Smiths blog really rocks

I stumbled across this blog on my friendfeed account a few days ago and it’s been a daily read ever since.

It’s http://sheysmith.com

Today he’s talking about tomorrow’s twit out and friendfeed and social networking.  He’s doing an amazing job on this blog and it’s become a daily read.

And he turned me on to disqus!

Disqus was the topic on today’s net@nite with Amber and Leo and at first glance it’s something you don’t need, as Leo observed.  But, on closer examination, it’s a great comment system for blogs that integrates video and ties comments in to social networks.     And best of all, it connects you to a community of blog commentors like Shey Smith.
