Most of you have probably come across Disqus (http://disqus.com/).  They provide commenting functionality for blogs, news sites etc. (see an example at the bottom of this article: http://techcrunch.com/2010/12/15/bing-everyscape-interior-views/)

Sites use Disqus instead of their own native commenting system because users can sign in with their Disqus id, Facebook or Twitter. 

Great!  So you get more comments on your blog post.  But how about monetizing that blog post?
What if Disqus also had a bitcoin-powered tipping function built in?

The neat-o factor here is if Disqus added the feature to their product, it would be immediately available on thousands of websites simultaneously. 
Now, instead of developing a bitcoin tipping widget and converting website owners one at a time, all we need to do is convert one website: Disqus. 

There is certainly something in it for Disqus: a new powerful feature for their clients, and maybe a commission on every transaction.

If you think this is a good idea, take a look at this page and see if you know any of these individuals at Disqus.  If you don't know any of them, click on their profile.  Most of them also have a Facebook profile.  Go to their Facebook profile and see if you have any 'friends' in common with any of them:

http://disqus.com/about/

If nobody can make a connection, then I'll write something up and send it to their business email.  But I've found in the past that this approach doesn't bear much fruit.

Disqus is nice, but IntenseDebate is better IMHO.

Both intensedebate and disqus have API's . Why not write a bitcoin plugin?

Building a plugin means having to convert every content provider that uses Disqus one at a time.  That would be plan B, I think.

If we expose one of these comment providers (or both) to bitcoin and they choose to adopt it, that is a much bigger promotional boost for bitcoin than us simply building a plugin.

The main goal, I think, is to gain exposure for bitcoin, not just to solve the technical problem with a plugin.

I'm still hoping someone on here has a personal connection with somebody on http://disqus.com/about/, if not 1 degree of separation than 2 via a Facebook friendship.

Write to Ro Gupta their VP of Business Development and tell him that: biz@disqus.com

He is aware of bitcoin.
