Commentary by Stephen Downes

I've commented on comments before, and in particular NPR's decision to shut down comments. This story looks at some alternatives, including Disqus (which we use here at OLDaily; I cleaned out some spam in Disqus this morning). The article also mentions the Coral project, covered here last year. This project, sponsored by Mozilla, continues to chug along; code is available in their repository. "Since The Coral Project was first announced two years ago, they have identified and are developing three highly customizable and open-source tools, as well as a guide to the tools and issues of audience engagement."
