1) I only comment on things that you have to register for on VERY rare occasion.
2) If I have to register, and I comment, I won't come back (unless you are Lifehacker, chances are, you aren't)
3)If you use disqus, I get an e-mail that says I got replied to. That is crucial to me coming back to your site.
4) Easier to spot/find trolls.
Do all of us a favor, and use Disqus or something similar, it's easy to integrate,
and it will help out your return rate on the chance that you write something that I want to comment on in the first place.

I won't ever give out your email address. I don't publish comments but if you'd like to write to me then you could use this form.
I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
