Echochamber.js – All of the commenting, none of the comments.

echochamber

echochamber.js is a third-party script you can install to add a simple comment form to your blog post or website.

Nothing new, right? Wrong! There’s a rather cunning twist:

When a user submits a comment, echochamber.js will save the comment to the user’s LocalStorage, so when they return to the page, they can be confident that their voice is being heard, and feel engaged with your very engaging content. It does not make any HTTP requests. Since LocalStorage is only local, you and your database need not be burdened with other people’s opinions.

Hilarious! Perhaps this could be of use over at The Verge.
