This innovative program (Shyftr) has some thought provoking applications and will be worth watching.

Please read regarding a proposal for open API for posting comments to blogs. I'd like to solicit your ideas on this topic, as I think it would both minimise load time and bandwidth expenditure.

Aaron Schiff

It's an interesting issue. If comments could somehow be pinged back to the original blog and hosted there then perhaps everyone would be happy? Certainly the value of the blogosphere is eroded if the conversation is fragmented too much.

I posted on this issues this morning as well. The main reason I am OK with Shyftr is that I am OK with social media. There is minimal difference between the way the two ideas handle "articles" and comments. What I would like to see is a trackback or something like it to the original article so that the content author has an idea that a conversation is happening somewhere else.
