This and other blogs have needed a feedback mechanism, a Democracy Wall, for some time now.
The advent of the Bloggernacle Times is a good step. The posters promise to point us to the best of the bloggernacle, and since they blog themselves, we don’t have to worry about any hidden biases in their judgment.
By itself that’s not enough. When it comes to Times and Seasons, for instance, people often have things to say about the blog or where its going, or even about an individual coblogger, but they’re reduced to plaintive posts on other blogs or isolated comments scattered across the vast landscape of Times and Seasons threads.
I’ve discovered a feature at the Millennial Star that will help. Next to each one of their links, they’ve included an icon that lets you comment on the link and read other comments. Now folks can have their say on T&S in one easy-to-find, easy-to-go-back-to place. I’ve started off the discussion, though my take on Times and Seasons is not a critical one.
