595 comments on article

I suggested in a recent post that the website would be more engaging if they opened up their articles for comments. And sooner the better if they wanted to keep their visitors.

They should look at

The Economist site welcome comments...and they are better off for it. A recent article about Tibet and the Olympics prompted 595 comments in the past 8 days. This is no longer just an article or a journalist's opinion. It has become an engaging and honest debate where we can all participate, argue and, who knows, even change our minds.

I've alway been impressed with The Economist as a brand. They do charming advertising, intelligent relationship marketing and they are clearly doing the right things online.

Of course they are perfectly positioned to capitalise on web 2.0 since they are in the content business.

But then again, so are RTE.

Its a very easy to go with piece. Simple and clean and very casual as I mentioned before. A more classic design from replica watches and the same looks that were been used to for quite a while now. Pretty easy to pass for an original because the real deal is not that expensive and a lot of people expect watches around 3k to be fake. The more expensive pieces always have more heat on them. There are few replica watches that have such a rich tradition in watchmaking as Rolex has. Even more, breitling replica sale is definitely a legend in this field and the amazing watches store will certainly not fall short of the legendary status replica watches has acquired in its long history. With a unique design that pleasantly combines a classic look, with high end materials fantastic build quality and a high tech and precise mechanism, this tag heuer replica uk is certainly a fantastic time piece for anyone looking for a quality watch.
