Experimental Community Building

I've been going back and forth on whether to install a comment aggregator and if so, which one. I've been looking at and Intense Debate. Today, we'll go with Intense Debate and see if this works for everyone. The idea is that those who comment regularly develop their own voice and audience. By aggregating comments, we can "own them". It let's you track an interesting commenter across multiple sites as well as find other places and topics to which they contribute.

For example, I'd enjoy blog stalking protectedstatic, singularity and Laureen as I generally find their comments insightful and/or amusing.

And if it doesn't work, I'll go back to the old way of doing things.
