Let me tell you about the web I want.
I want a web where everything I write is hosted on my own domain, including comments I post about other people’s posts.
I want a web where I can comment on someone else’s posts without having to sign up for their site, forum, or favorite centralized commenting system.
I want a web where I can comment on other people’s posts, even if their site doesn’t have commenting functionality.
I want a web where I can share and express my approval of someone else’s work without having to do it in a walled-garden social network.
I want a web where I can post anything I want, on my own domain. If it’s related to someone else’s stuff, I will notify them; but I will leave it up to them if and how they display it. Maybe they display my comment underneath their article. Maybe they just link back to it. Maybe they ignore it altogether. It’s up to them; it’s their site.
Read this with a “Keanu Reeves on the phone” type of voice in your mind. I assure you, it rocks.
