I comment in a lot of blogs. I like the format and in fact, it's fast becoming a recognized and valued content. In some sense, the groundbreaking Huffington Post, although it has news stories and editorial, is really made up of the sum of its comments, and offers various "badges" such as Superuser, Pundit, Networker, to recognize high power contributors. In response to an article about Facebook wanting to grab the comment space, I proposed my thoughts on the features of the ideal commenting system:

Quote:
The ultimate commenting system would add features like editing, revisions, spell checking, authorship and copyright protection­, and yes ultimately a payment system. Right now Disqus comes close just because it associates the text with the writer...n­ot the blog or portal. Other features:

Should identify similar comments (redundanc­y) in thread to avoid duplicatio­n of content.

Should identify posts that might be better as a reply rather than new thread.

Should find places to post comment other than current blog (sell your work to other consumers)­.

Should value content with score for originalit­y (using Google type algorithm)”

I take it a step further.

Maybe what I want it the ultimate Identity system...the ultimate Ownership system.

So, I want to "place" my content in various venues -- the most appropriate places -- but I want to retain an association with myself or a business.

That means identity. Now many "universal" identity schemes have been proposed, but they usually involve associating oneself with one or the other sites (Facebook).

My own experience with Google is that this can be a double edged sword. If "they" don't like something you say, suddenly all your "identity" becomes compromised.

A true identifier has to be really primal and irrevocable, like a Social Security number, or birth certificate. The closest thing in computerland would be a Public-Private key pair in an asymmetric encryption scheme.

Data can carry a "signature" that could verify its origin...mapping back to the creator. Some already use PGP to do just that on Usenet and other places.
