Comment Tracking by Volume
Robert Scoble proposes an aggregation engine for posts that are heavily commented on. Great way to see the busy posts of the day and to quickly locate the focus of current discussions in the blogosphere. What would be required here to detect posts with high comment volume across multiple blogging platforms?
Memeorandum shows you blogs that have gotten linked to (the more links, the higher up on the page it goes). But no one is showing you posts that have received a ton of comments. That’d be useful. Particularly for something like photos. I’ve noticed that about 5% (or less) of my Flickr photos get commented on and the ones that do get comments are usually my more interesting photos.
This would be useful beyond flickr too. What if I could take my subscriptions / feeds and rank them in terms of comments posted? That would put the "hot" posts at the top, and let me get into the business of the day much more quickly and effectively.

Interesting thought. This is where pan-system commenting engines have a field day while blogging platforms and other each-site-runs-their-own struggle to find the technology to even address the use case in the first place.
