Disqus2012 Launches

Today is launch day for Disqus2012. The speedy new commenting system built from the ground up by our portfolio company Disqus is generally available today.

There's a slick new website, a comprehensive new feature list, and a showcase featuring all the big blogs and online publications that are using D2012.

And Disqus has made a 60 second spot showing off it's new baby and all the tricks it can do.

This is a big moment for Disqus. We've been watching this new product grow and develop in front of our own eyes here at AVC. We were the first community to get it and the first to try most of the new features as they rolled out. It has been rocky at times but I know that Daniel and the team appreciate all of us being beta testers and a source of continuous feedback.

There probably isn't a service on the web that has more of me invested in it than Disqus. AVC was the first blog to run Disqus when it launched at YC in mid 2007, I have contributed numerous feature requests over the years, and this community has provided so much insight and direction to me and the team. I believe unconditionally in the vision of a web scale commenting community. That is Disqus and Disqus2012 is a big step in realizing that vision.
