Intense Debate and Madkast

Posted on November 14, 2007

Just a little housekeeping. I recently added some functionality to this blog that I thought you would all enjoy. The first thing I added was madkast. You have probably seen the little green image next to the titles of all my posts. Well, that’s madkast. They let you the reader quickly and easily share my posts in a number of different ways should you deem them worthy of sharing. The install is quick and painless and I would suggest giving it a try if you have a blog.

The second thing I added was intense debate. Intense debate is a really slick new commenting system that simply replaces the one your blog already comes with. In fact, with WordPress all you need to do is install a simple plugin and you’re ready to rock.

Intense debate does many things including comment tracking, user profiles, threaded comments and commenter reputation. They also let you import old comments and will send your comments back to you if you ever decide to leave.

As Brad Feld pointed out comments are the dark matter of the blogosphere so it is great to see someone shedding some light on them.

That is all.
