@TravisStandley Great point. I've done presentations in the past where I made the mistake of trying to cover too much, or didn't even really have a take away of any significance.
@TravisStandley Great quote, thanks for that.

@TravisStandley Great point, and I think a lot of people don't realize that. When I first started reading about Josiah Wedgewood I was surprised at how much I learned from what he did. I guess I thought that technology has changed the world so much that we wouldn't have anything to learn from someone in the 18th century.

@freelanza This blog is actually on Tumblr, so that's at least one non-WP platform that it works on right now. My wife is excited for more platforms, though too.
Cool stuff about the jobs, you might have some competition. ;)
Thanks @davidr , @JMattHicks had some great info for us.
@jlandoe @JMattHicks Yes, Livefyre definitely does amplify the SEO credit because of the fact that it ties in Facebook and Twitter as well.
I'm not sure if other commenting platforms like Disqus are search engine crawlable or not. All I know is that Livefyre is.
@jlandoe @JMattHicks To clarify, Livefyre isn't a blog, it's simply the platform for comments on a blog—in other words, everything on this page from that comment box up there down through all the comments is Livefyre. Everything else is the blog.
And simply using Livefyre gives you the SEO feature, you don't need to set it up in any specific way.
@jlandoe Great question, Jim. According to this page: http://www.livefyre.com/features/#blazing-realtime Livefyre says that it's the only commenting platform that gives you SEO credit for all comments on your site, Facebook and Twitter. So, (according to my understanding) all of the comments on this particular post, for instance, a search engine like Google or Bing can "see"—it becomes just like the content in the post. Therefore, keywords used in the comments are added to that of my blog and post. That's all I know, but @JMattHicks might be able to help us a little more with this question.
The feature of bringing all of the conversations from other communities into the same place is one of my favorites, too. It brings more context into the discussion and brings it all into one conversation as opposed to disjointed, smaller conversations.
I like number 4. Osama and the Columbine kids did change the world, but not in a lasting way. Seems like the only ways that really, actually last are the positive ones.

It's kind of funny to me that parents don't realize that how they treat their children is directly parallel to how their children behave. Humans come out of the womb complete terrors—they're made that way, in part by how they are raised. Everyone should know that how we are parented has a huge effect on what we turn out to be like. If you think there's something wrong with how your child behaves, then first look at yourself and see how you can change your parenting. Then, look at the child.

Things like that make me so mad, too. I have a new daughter—four months old now. I wondered why fathers treated their kids like that before 4 months ago, but now I really wonder. What are they thinking? It seems to me that you've got to be pretty self-absorbed to treat your child like that.

I'm definitely installing livefyre on my updated blog. Used disqus on the old one, but I'll be switching over - livefyre has some fantastic features.
