Marcus Couch


In this episode, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Daniel Ha, CEO and co-founder of Disqus. Ha explains why he created the service, what his thoughts are on large sites disabling comments, and the state of comments on the web.

We also discuss the company’s monetization strategies and what opportunities exist to generate revenue around comments. Ha shares what the company learned from its Sponsored Comments experiment and what it’s doing to improve communication with customers.
