To share a little of the sentiment from some discussions I've been having to encourage co.mmments.com.
One day we?ll be able to follow the conversation from blog post to blog post and comment to comment across the entire blogosphere.
I see co.mments future as a tracker and aggregator of conversations.
As of yet the conversation still exists in the BBS?s the About.com?s and on in the comments of sites like NYTimes. however the blogosphere and services like co.mmments will gradually gobble these old corporate hierchies up and allow the reorganization of conversation in brilliant new ways. One of which is that conversations will no longer be tied to the brand or corporation?s domain space which sponsored them. Words and comments from all over the web and hence world will intermingle in natural threads. You?ll have only to favor or filter your favorite places of discussion wether that be slashdot and metafilter, or your favorite blogs?. and filter by language? or even geography to see what people are saying near you.
Threaded conversations like tagging, and trusted models like blogging (before them) will become a major new facet aka. dimension of the internet.
