by The Content Strategist

Dave Winer suggests a different approach to blog comments, treating them as a ‘publication’ rather than a ‘conversation’:

[…] this has led me to an idea that comments could work quite a bit differently and remove the incentives to replay old arguments, and keep the comments focused on the ideas being responded to.

1. A fixed commenting period for each post of 24 hours.

2. Until the period expires, none of the comments would be visible to other commenters.
