Keeping track of comments

Posted 27 January 2007 in cocomment, comment, communication, conversation, and service

A while back I started searching through Google, Yahoo, and MSN, trying to find every reference to my name online. I'm trying to reel in everything I've said out on the interweb, because I feel it's important to know exactly what I've said over the years...just in case. Indeed, I've discovered I was a very hardlining Linux fanatic on Slashdot throughout my high school years. Good thing I grew out of my youthful arrogance!

I wish I had kept track of these things from the very beginning, because it's very difficult to find everything out on the intertubes: it's a big place! Luckily, there's a service I've signed up for in order to make future commenting easier to track: coComment. It seems to be a good service, although I've had it in my mind for a long time to write my own software to do the same thing. Of course my version would do everything they do, and it would do it better. And it would run on Linux! I'll bet they use stupid Microsoft software like a bunch of chumps.

The point of all this is that I've implemented coComment support on my blog, so if you have an account, you can easily keep track of what you say. Snazzy! Sign up at coComment, and come leave a comment to try it out. coComment will even keep track of your ongoing conversations for you, which is what the interblag is all about, anyway: communication.
