CoComment Now Enabled

0 comments suggest edit

CoComment Logo My blog now supports CoComment tracking. Let me know if you run into any problems with posting comments.

As I mentioned earlier, I added CoComment to Subtext as an administrative option. I am running the latest build from our Subversion repository. What better way to hash out bugs than to dogfood your own code. And man, was I eating some chow last night and this morning. I think I teased out most of the pressing bugs and my blog is pretty stable right now. Whew!

I performed a live test of automatically upgrading the schema and stored procs via the new web-based upgrade wizard in Subtext. That was really cool. When I was done, it looked like all my blog posts were gone. I nearly splattered my eyes on the monitors. But that was simply a UI glitch caused by hitting the site while files were still being copied over.

    So, how exactly does CoComment work?

    Have a look at Phil's earlier post here for a little more info. The basic premise behind it is to be able to track your comments in one centralized place. I've had some fun with it, but to be honest unless the adoption rate skyrockets (or the guys over at coco can work some kind of magic and lower the bar to entry) I'm afraid it might not last. Well, it'll probably last, but won't be the next Technoratti.
    The problem is 2 fold: A) to use it you have to have an account and B) the blog owner has to implement the Coco service on their site (well, the big names are supported out of the box, like typepad, WP, etc...but most tech blogs run on some other flavor of blogging software). I'm sure Phil could come up w/ some sort of math equation stating how this will logarithmically taper off as time goes on...but I'll leave that up to him ;-).

    Well, with a short name like CoCo, I'm not sure I want it on my site...
    Seriously, it does sound like an uphill battle for acceptance. Especially with the number of people who won't sign up for any account...
