coCommenting Enabled

I’ve made a few little changes to Submit Response, making it compatible with coComment .

Here’s what coComment does:

When you comment on a blog, coComment keeps a copy of your message on a special page - called “your conversations” - that allows you to quickly see your comment and where it was posted, with a link to the original site.

Whether you’ve commented on a blog or you’re just following a blog-based conversation of interest to you, coComment can let you know what’s been added to a particular discussion in real time.

So, no more thinking, ‘I wonder if anyone replied to my comment on, er, that site I was on the other day, the one about, er, stuff, and, um, things - what was it called again?’. Which, speaking as someone who spends far too much time wittering on the internet and has the short term memory of a gnat, is a bloody godsend.

If, for some sinister reason, you want to read what I’ve been saying on other websites, you can do so at my coComment page.

And, if your site isn’t supported by coComment, you can follow these geeky instructions, or these simple instructions to get on board.

Update: Firefox users can install an extension to make coCommenting easier, or a Greasemonkey user script to completely automate the process.

Another update: coComment is seriously flawed at the moment, since it will only track comments left by coComment users, rendering it pretty useless if you’re trying to follow a discussion, see if someone has replied to a question, &c.

A rival service has launched - co.mments - which, while otherwise less sophisticated than coComment, does track all comments left in a thread you’re tracking.
