Simpler comments system

August 20th, 2010

I was watching the most recent TWIT special, which is a collection of young adults talking about entrepreneurship. Most of them entrepreneurs themselves. It was a good, inspiring watch, so check it out at

One of the young entrepreneurs is Joey Primiani, and he’s made a simpler commenting system, that I’m trying out on my blog.

I was using Disqus, but it adds a big blob of busy-ness at the bottom of each post, so I wasn’t too keen on it. Joey’s comment system is clean and simple, but only ties in to twitter. You put your twitter name in, and your comment. It pulls all your details, including your avatar, from Twitter.

    Not very secure, though, I could be anyone masquerading as Pluvialis. Also I’d need to make a twitter account that has details I want to publicise while commenting, although maybe that shouldn’t be the way to do it.

    well, you certainly sound like Pluvialis πŸ˜›

    I don’t think you have to enter a twitter name if you don’t want, and then there’s always the good old fashioned signing off.

    However, it seems broken πŸ™

    -1 years ago is a bad sign, and it thinks fredsherbet is Matt Deegan! I’m not sure who he is. Weird that he has the same first name as me…
