Commenting Systems Aren’t Broken, They’re Lame

Don't Read The Comments

With news of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Mozilla working together┬áto create a “audience engagement platform”[1], I was interested in this time-tested idea of how “broken” commenting systems are. Dave Winer is also talking about this, and as you might expect, I mostly disagree with him. The thing is, commenting systems are not broken, they just suck. We may currently have the best we can get from text-based system, but the work should be spent on making them suck less.

There are no more results.
