I love Google reader, but the current version of comments it supports is flawed. I realised the problem tonight. Reader is all about “push” instead of “pull”. I don’t have to keep checking websites for updates and going from site to site. I go to reader and, if there’s something new, it tells me. But they haven’t extended that to their own comments. If I respond to your comment on something you shared, there’s no notification to you. So if you don’t keep checking, there can be no conversation. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they figure that out and fix it, but for the moment it’s annoying me.

See my witticisms! Respond!

    One of the great things I love about flickr, is that at , you can get a feed of all of the updates relevant to you – including later comments on photos you commented on. I often wish it worked for the entire internet.
