I’ve posted before on how Talkdigger has revamped to become an inlink search bookmark service, ie. bookmarking a link search of a blog post, plus you can even add your own comments, kind of like participating in the link search conversation.
Give your conversational bookmarks tags…the whole social network bit.
I like this idea that we can bookmark a search result (a search result of seeing who is linking to a blog post), but is this a complete conversation just because people are linking to a post, if you don’t think so, complete it with your comments or even include links in your comments to other posts talking about the same thing.
This last bit about you and others adding comments to a link search bookmark does make it a little more complete…as there may be posts about the same topic, but they just didn’t link to the blog post in question, so you can add links to these posts in your comments.
I basically blogged about the new Talkdigger as a comment in Fred’s blog.
When looking at a conversation it will also show whether the links in your conversation are part of other conversations, and links to the sources (blogs) from the conversation, to see what other conversations they are in…I think this is right, see Fred’s post.
The old fashion way is to write a review blog post about a blog conversation, listing all the links from the conversation within your post.
This got me thinking once again to an old post of mine about blog conversations…what about a list bookmark service like Fanpop or Hubpages, etc…that is focused on blog conversation review posts. You get your own space to write posts, these posts have three sections…1. your post title, content with links, and tags, 2. a summary of all the links you mention, and 3. a link to a blog engine link search eg. Technorati or Blogpulse or TalkDigger.
Later on if you find a new link that is part of the conversation you can add it to section 2 (summary of links), and even re-edit the body of your post (section 1), or perhaps leave a comment to mention updates to the conversation…have a comments feed for a post, and a post feed…plus a main feed for your blog, and a main comments feed.
If you don’t want to write your post within the service maybe it can re-syndicate posts from your blog, ala Soapbox (although, this would have to divide your post into the 3 sections some how).
I really like the idea of a service that distills blog conversations, Technorati tags, Technorati link searches are just data or information, this data needs to be fleshed out into a review. I suggest these reviews are in a user blog, with each post divided into 3 sections…can be updated, have feeds and tags, and are all present in a social network.
