Subscribe to Comment

Comment, was before the rise of Web 2.0 a remark, a statement that expresses a personal opinion or belief or to add information. However, it drastically changes when various Web2.0 site come into the scene, putting more user generated content online and of course the sharing of it.

To foster a closer community, the comment system instead of the old, "I just want to speak my mind about the original post" become a communication channel, in Web1.0 term, a chat room or discussion thread. In some instance, a simple blog post or status update could generate from hundreds to millions of comments. Say Justin Bieber announcing that he is gay. Million of young girl will comment on how disappointed they are, million of gay guy will tell him how cute he look, another million of gay guy will tell him that they are gay but not pedophile. The rest of the straight guy will not comment but upon reading the status update turn and tell the girl next to them, and say, see I told you so. What about the other 10s of millions? They are conversation between the commentators about how is that possible, organizing of gay pride parade with Justin, and not to forget the trolling of Jonas Sisters fan club.

Commenting has since then become a communication channel, some found friends from commenting on blogs, commenting on status message and even pictures or video. Good notification system play a big part in encouraging the continuity of the conversation. So after you left a comment on blog why not consider subscribing to the comment?

However you need a google account to be able to do this, but c'mon you're not telling me that you manage to resist the google effect for so long right? It's virtually impossible to escape the virtual claw of google in the virtual world!

What is lauyeelosophy?

It was a little unexpected that this blog is still up at running after so many years, and definitely a huge chunk of inactivity. Started off with nothing but some personal nags, sharing some of the songs that I genuinely like and their lyrics, and some thoughts that I have no one around me to discuss with, bullshits that I've structured.

Soon I'll put everything into a mixing bowl, sharing lyrics with a structured bullshit story. I wouldn't update it as often as I'd like to but for people who like reading, I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Yes a picture is worth a thousand words, but it wouldn't be as entertaining as a thousand words for sure.

Sincerely yours,
