Blog Bid'ness: A comment firehose?

Sep 14 2009 Published by under Blogging

Huh. I just noticed what appears to be a new featcha of the Sb. If you click the "More Scienceblogs" link in the right sidebar there is an option for The Latest Comments.
It pulls published comments from any of the Sb blogs and lists the recent ones on a single page. Kinda like the Last 24 hrs page except for comments.
I like it.
What do you think? Does this improve your Sb-based procrastinating and time-wasting experience?

    Nice in concept but in practice I'm not sure if I like it. If I want to see the last fifty comments on scienceblogs, all I really have to do is to bring up PZ's most active post.

    If you imposed a timeout function for a given blog you could easily tweak it so that the higher trafficked sites didn't dominate the feed...
