I see it more as defending ourselves from faith in all its forms.

While I'm happy to see we now have an unwed female (and quiet probably atheist) PM, I'm reserving judgment until I hear her position on the filter.

I'm sorry I missed this before but this is another nice option (though it could create some problems for sites that can't run the service on their marketing websites).

Interesting... I had always thought this wasn't possible. Wonder if it's the same for Blogger...

I had to dig deep to find this information - it would be good if it were more prominent.

The Open Cloud Initiative (OCI) at http://www.opencloudinitiative.org/ is hoping to put some teeth back in the manifesto and extended the invitation to IBM to subject it to public scrutiny. That should turn the focus to standards where it belongs.

No offense intended, but is it not a little too convenient for an infrastructure provider to push a pyramid model where infrastructure is what half a dozen times larger than the top "Application" layer?

I'm still quite worried about detaching my comments from my blog as the two are (obviously) intrinsically linked. I'd be happier if there was more in the way of migration options... both for backing out later (eg pushing comments back into the underlying blogging platform as well so as the commenting system can be removed without incident, or using the underlying blogging platform for comment storage and intensedebate for metadata like threading, votes, etc.) and for migrating between commenting systems (eg Disqus <-> intensedebate).
