Leave a Comment About the Comments

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. We're in the middle of this big site redesign, and one of the crucial things to consider is how the comments should work. What I like about the current system is the simplicity — you don't have to log in, you don't need to flash your Facebook credentials, anyone can read the comments. But there are certainly limitations. You should be able to reply to other comments, or get notified when someone responds to yours. Perhaps a preview/edit function. Voting comments up or down? Not sure how I feel about that. So I'd love to hear your preferences. What kind of commenting system would you prefer? Also, any suggestions for sites that do the comments just right would be helpful.

2. David Choe was all over the news yesterday. He's the street artist who accepted stock instead of cash to paint murals at Facebook's first headquarters, and he stands to make $200 million the day of the IPO. While you probably never turned down cash for $200 million in stock, have you ever been paid in something other than money? In high school, I once shoveled the yard of an elderly woman who paid me in fruitcake, ladies mittens and PDQ Chocolate mix. Not my best negotiation.

3. Rumors are swirling about a possible Back to the Future musical. What movie would you be most excited to see adapted for the stage?

4. You might be holding or attending a Super Bowl party on Sunday. Perhaps you've been to an Oscar-viewing party. If you're into politics, maybe a debate-watching party is something you've attended. What are some other TV events that have inspired your friends to throw parties?

[Have a great weekend! See all the previous Friday Happy Hour transcripts.]

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
