    I'm a little verklempt! Talk amongst yourselves...

    I'll give you a topic: Blogs and the commenters who love them. Discuss!

    Ocassionally a post here will set off a barrage of comments like Monday's discussion of the YES Network. The weblog Signal vs. Noise hosted by 37Signals mentioned an interesting phenomenon recently. The real meat of many blogs can be found deep within the attached comments. Yet no matter how enlightening those comments are, they'll remain buried, while the original post will forever hog the spotlight.

    Some folks have turned the tables on commenting by offering a blog with listings of comments they've made on other sites -- an intriguing approach. So far, though, I've seen no sign of comments making their way to center stage, but as we know from our exercise in Connecticut geography, you can learn a lot from a comment.

    Commenting. It's like buttah.
