The dynamics of blog commenting, or lack thereof...
The newly added CommentRSS is actually helpful in tracking comments in my SharpReader.
It doesn't appear to be the final solution though. I still have to track back through the entries in a feed and then remember which one I posted a comment to. Then I can expand the nodes and see if anyone has made any comments to my comment.
So it appears that at this point Blogging communication is two-way for the blogger and one and a half way for the blog commentor. We can “talk” (by adding comments) but we can't “hear” (find out the rest of the conversation that is embedded in the comment realm of each entry).
I know some people have been asking for tools to help with blogging, so this is my request. A better Commenting/Conversation paradigm.
Maybe I should walk over to Scoble's Future of RSS thread and give a suggestion, but then if someone responded to it, how would I know (easily). This might explain why more people are commenting by adding links to their blog.
Any ideas? Maybe some projects I don't know about already in the works?
