Testing Disqus

I have noticed that a few people in my Friendfeed have been using a new (to me) social commenting service Disqus to mediate their blog comments. Unable to resist trying out “yet another Web2.0 service” (YAWTS), I’ve signed up. After some adjustment to my Blogger template to include the necessary third-party code, my comments are now using Disqus and you can subscribe to a post’s comment stream, or all my comments. Should be a nice way to monitor comments on my posts if nothing else!

Why not try it yourself: it has some of the features that your Blogger comments engine is missing such as threaded comments, cross-social network links and reblogging. I just hope that it doesn’t go the way of Swurl!
