To The Commentosphere!

Daniel R. Luke, a frequent reader of Collision Detection, has pointed out an idea whose time has come:

Comments should be searchable. I should be able to aggregate all comments I or someone else has left on a particular blog. Ideally, this should span the entire blogosphere so that I could aggregate all the comments I have left on all blogs. It would be easy, then. to see where people go and what they say. This way the audience of the blogosphere would be much more empowered. In essence, I wouldn't necessarily have to startmy own blog to, in effect, have a blog of sorts.

Though, the name "commentosphere" disturbs me somewhat.... oh well, it will never catch on.
