Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot! agdbkefgbe]]>
Yes, Tony, I don’t think you are trying to take on CommentPress. But your project marks a wonderful opportunity to compare the two systems! It will be fascinating to see them operating on the same text, so we can consider what sorts of commenting and discussion the two systems afford.]]>
Mark, Thanks for picking up on this initiative to annotate JZ’s book.
Just to clarify - my intention is not at all to “go Head to Head”, although it looks like that. This is how we ended up diigo commenting on the CommentPress version of JZ’s book…
I like to read serious books online because it allows m to collect notes online, search them, group them etc - do all the nice things I’ve come to rely on Diigo for. At the same time, Diigo produces lots of different RSS feeds, which is always useful for reporting activity back at openDemocracy — (we have a “must read” section on the site, The World, that is in fact run by a Diigo group).
So when I decided on Sunday I’d get into JZ’s book, my first thoguht was to grab the PDF from JZ’s web site, run it through PDFtoHTML, post it on oD, and start annotating. The wonders of a CC license! In fact, I did that. (PDF2HTML, although it did a great job, put the whole book into a single page … heavy load …). I posted the first version of my blog inviting everyone to join in the annotation.
I emailed JZ to tell him what I was up to and if he had some nicer Ur format for me to do another HTML conversion, and he pointed me to the Yupnet version. That was so much nicer, I immediately switched to that, without a thought for the complication with CommentPress.
As I say, I love having all my comments and bookmarks in one place to search. reminds me of my card index file:) I don’t think CommentPress will give me that. I’ve wanted to do something with the diigo group functions beyond what we do internally at oD, and this seems like a really good opportunity.
Now … we’ll have to see if this is not too confusing having all these annotation possibities on the same page. If so, we may have to go back to the mega file I first produced.
