CommentAPI gaining momentum

Joe Gregorio

Adoption of the CommentAPI is taking off. Sam Ruby is talking about adding it to mombo, while Dare Obasanjo will add it to his RSS Bandit if Sam follows through.

Meanwhile Ted Leung has added support in his pyblosxom comments and Adrian Frost is working on support for it in BlogWorks.

Drop me a note if you know of other blogging software or aggregators that are supporting the CommentAPI that I haven't mentioned here. Thanks.

Joe, I don't know about Moz, but embedding IE in a WinForms window is very easy if all you want to do is viewing. Adding events between IE and its container shouldn't be too hard, although I admin I never tried that one myself.

Ziv, I did try it once with IE and couldn't get it to embed. If you want to try it please do.
