Tracking weblog conversations

Just in case you haven’t discovered Lilia Efimova’s weblog, please take time to pop across and read one of the most interesting sites in the present blogosphere. Lilia writes intelligently on many topics and is currently exploring the nature of weblog conversations. I’ve always been frustrated by the lack of tools to track conversations across multiple weblogs, and in particular weblog comments. Sometimes I use web browser bookmarks, sometimes I can use my RSS aggregator, but often it’s just a real pain. As a consequence I am doubtlessly missing out on lots of interesting discussion. Perhaps Lilia’s research will come up with some interesting recommendations for the makers of weblogging software. In the meantime, if anyone has any tips for tracking conversations, then please feel free to start a new conversation on this weblog.
