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."
