Small conversations tightly joined 20:38 on Friday

Sometimes blog comments form a focused ad hoc “discussion board” around a topic. This happened on my blog when I posted about my LifeBlog installation problems. The comments thread turned into a Nokia support site with folks from S60 and Nokia chiming in, and in a short file Nokia issued an update and the problem was fixed.

More than often though, an important discussion is going on in parallel on many blogs. What if we could join comments on multiple sites to create one, bigger discussion board around the same topic? Maybe the comments on different blogs would be shared among posts that take part in the same discussion?

Would the focus drift too easily? Would we end up with nothing more useful than general discussion forums?

There’s a lot more thought related to this on the CoComment blog.
