Next time you make a comment here, you’ll notice that I switched from the default WordPress commenting feature to using Intense Debate. Let me know what you think of it, please.
Intense Debate is a new company based here in Boulder, and I know its recently appointed CEO, Tom Keller. What they’re doing definitely looks interesting. The idea is to take the vanilla user commenting system that’s typical of most blogs and supercharge it.
I actually tried this a couple months ago on another WordPress project of mine and had trouble, then uninstalled it. But I gave it another chance on this blog and found that it’s been improved, apparently. Installing and importing old comments went off without a hitch.
