That Atariboy gets Everywhere!

with 65 comments

I made it onto the top10 on Cocomment!!!

There is definatly quite a stir about this site, its going to be big, the simplest ideas usually seem to work the best, and this one is pretty simple and something i felt the need for the past few weeks.

Its currently still in beta and the invites are hard to come by, i got one off a fellow blogger, i think the best place to get hold of one is on the popular Scroblizer blog.

All you do is after you have finished writing your comment, press the cocomment bookmarklet, then hit the normal submit button and the comment/conversation will appear on Cocomments “Your conversations” page when you log in.

Being able to check and even be notified about responses to your comments on any blog, run on any of the six major blog bases (Blogger, MSN Spaces, MySpace, TypePad, WordPress and Xanga) all from one place is a bloggers dream, it means no more diving through your history to find that obscurely named blog that you were waiting for a comment from.

With Cocomment you can check on an rss feed or just go to the site and see all of the blogs you have commented on, if any have new responses they are bold, and then you can view the response from the cocomment site as well. The only step you have to take away from the “your conversations” page is to reply, and i can see that built-in replying cant be too far away either.

It could become like a blog viewing hub, there are a lot of possiblities for this idea, i hope they get it right, because if they do it could be huge!

There is also a greasemonkey script available here for automatically hitting the bookmarklet for you (thanks Ryan)

Dont forget to Digg this if you found it useful.

  4. You actually forgot to talk about the GreaseMonkey script mentioned on my post. :-\ It’s more helpful than the bookmarklet

    I know we have a couple of SEO geeks here, so I thought I’d intro you to this tech and get your POV.

  22. [...] Most of the bloggers out there already know about CoComment, but if you do not, this is the right place to find out what it does and where you can get it. (thanks to atariboy) [...]

  23. you need to install cocomment-promo.php and promote coComment in your comment form: http://andreib.com/blog/2006/02/cocomment-promo

  27. great concept. clean converation tracking is the single biggest missing “feature” of blogging. However, I hope they implement something better than the bookmarklet. That seems like an ugly usability problem. A wordpress/MT/etc. plugin would be a nice solution instead.

  30. A rush of traffic/users from digg.com isn’t nessecaraly a good thing. Too much traffic can put too much pressure on the developers. The forums, with all those bugs, exploded overnight right in front of my eyes.

  31. What the FUCK. I can’t comment on a whole bunch of blogs all of a sudden… but my comment shows up on coco. Is this post moderated or somthing?

  45. [...] Here is the link to the dude I have just quoted, visit his site to see this coCommenting thing in screenshots. Don’t know why I am giving him more traffic, he is already boasting about the thousands of hits he is getting every day. Oh well, suppose I’m just lazy not writing my own description of coCommenting. I have used the word coCommenting a few times though, so hopefully that counts in my favour and drives the Google traffic my way. One more time. coCommenting. [...]

  52. I agree with Andrei. Too much popularity too soon for a service which wasn’t really supposed to go live yet is not necessarily good. I see more and more negative comments all over the place about how it’s not up to speed yet, lacks this or that essential feature, etc… What do you expect of a product which is (was?) supposed to be in “closed beta”, ie tested by a limited amount of people?

    Tolerance and patience, people. CoComment isn’t something you want to kill by telling it “it’s now or never, if you don’t work perfectly right now you really suck”.

  55. [...] I really like coComment. It makes it easier for me to track my comments, and I have been using it for a little more than a week thanks to these posts. The problem I have with commenting is that it takes me away from being able to scan things. In order to follow conversations, I would need to remember to visit the site again. That was just a nuisance. I now no longer need to visit sites independently to follow the conversation, as I can merely go to coComment and see all of my various comments. It is still not quite complete–Blogger blogs that use Haloscan do not work with it as of this writing. Nonetheless, I like it since it allows me to continue to exist from within the confines of my aggregator. Go sign up for it! [...]

  56. [...] Atari boi with more on CoComment [...]

  57. I am playing with coComment tonight (took me a couple of days to make time).

    I am interested to see if it will track comments from non-cocomment users too. I could see this being possible for systems like wordpress that publish comment feeds.
