    Congrats. As a blogger, this has always been my favorite YC startup (other than mine, of course). And Daniel and Jason are a strong team.

    Wow, I added it to my site and… well, it took all of two minutes! Congrats to the team!

    Good investment. There’s a ton of innovation to be done in this area.

    I was wondering how long it would take you to do this.Is it not all about scale however, what happens when i want all my comments in a system that is not tracking a blog i just commented in – do the third parties need another third party to share? Feld uses intense debate, techcrunch its own system – i want all my comments in Disqus and i want to widget my comments – how can i go get them? Which gets me back to this whole – whoever gets the biggest the quickest wins? Whats the solution for this fred?

      Disqus has some ideas which I think are good ones. But at this point Ishouldn’t disclose themfred

    I’ve installed Disqus on my blog. Love it. It’s like getting two blogs for the price of one.

    Do you need a disqus account to make a comment?(If this works no!)

      It worked and the answer is no

    I just finished development on a new Firefox Extension/Bookmarklet that displays your blog comments (because you use Disqus) right inside Google Reader; check it out – I think you’ll like it:http://www.sixteenseven.com…The end goal is to work with Disqus in order to link it up with FriendFeed so you can get to the conversation anywhere you are.
