Readrboard
Filling a place between the Like Button and article comments, ReadrBoard is a bookmarklet that makes it easy to "react" to quotes, images, and video on a page. Run the bookmarklet (or embed the javascript if you are a publisher) on any website, select what interests you, and then click a button or add a tag. User profiles are auto-generated, showing a stream of what you've rated all across the web, capturing how readers feel about the pieces of content that grab them most. The goal is to help readers & publishers identify what online content people care about, and why.

Wow. I've been dreaming of something like this. But to me the ideal usage is to make it easy to see other's comments once you've logged it. Am I missing this functionality here? is it coming?

Good stuff.

If the bookmarklet is active on a page, or the publisher has installed it directly, reactions and comments to content should show up.
On this page, I just reacted to your "Good stuff" comment.
At the end of the "posted by Potomac Avenue at..." you should see some little bubbles once the bookmarklet is activated. From that little popup you can see reactions and comments.

Also, just noticed that one of the sites on the front page is one of our beta sites.
Checkout the racialicious post on the guy in the original Alien suit to see how it works when natively included on the page.

Interesting. I'd love to be able to see them a bit more proactively on the page... ideally as I'm reading I could select to see them pop up.

And then there's groups...

Nevertheless, again, awesome stuff. I've been dreaming of something like this for a while--to me it's the next step of evolution in filters.

So I can see reactions, but not ON the page in context right? I tried to react to posts in this thread and they show up on the readrboard site as reactions to specific posts I'd highlighted but not as little popups on the comments. As metacommentary it would be a lot more useful to have those there nah mean?
