Ulises has responded to some of our thoughts on DTD at the end of the original post, here’s a snippet:
“Part of what I am suggesting is that there is a need to balance the ability to post my responses at an external location (such as one’s own blog) without the original author becoming aware of what I am doing, and the ability to insert comments right at the point of origination so that everyone reading the original content knows that I have something to say about it. Maybe the current mechanisms we have (the mechanisms that alerted me to the responses by James, Stephen and Ian) are good enough. Most likely, however, we will continue to see new and interesting (and complex) solutions such as the ones I described in this article. I think any attempts to make the web more dialogical are a wonderful thing.”
Yes, yes, yes… this is an excellent considered addition to the comments discussion too.
