Mark Evans interviews Daniel Ha of Disqus

Mark Evans has posted an interview with Daniel Ha of Disqus.

If you’re not familiar with Disqus, it’s a blog commenting service that provides commenting functionality for blogs and other websites – and includes some pretty snazzy features such as the ability to respond to comments via email.

Disqus has been increasing in popularity amongst bloggers since its launch in 2006.

Here’s a snippet of what Daniel talked with Mark about:

How did you decide on developing a blog commenting service? What did you do to create a service that bloggers wanted?

The gap between forums and blog comments was actually quite small. One of the initial ideas involved bridging communities across forums; we learned that this was much more applicable to blogs, especially since a lot of the conversation happens right in a blog’s comments. The first few versions of Disqus was relatively light and bare-bones. We allowed a lot of focus and direction to be directly influenced by what bloggers were passionate about. Along the way, I’ve been learning a lot about bloggers and the communities they run. It helps greatly in deciding the direction of the service.
