GitHub Issues as a discussion forum experiment

View My GitHub Profile

the Octocat De Los Muertos

After posting my first blog post on my newly created, Jekyll-powered, GitHub page, where I concluded said post with a question, a friend quite rightfully pointed out that I had no means of contact to ask a question. He suggested Disqus, or just posting my Twitter name. I jokingly suggested using GitHub issues and then realized it might just work. The general target audience of my posts will likely already have GitHub accounts so I am not too concerned about another account being used by readers. Since crazier things have happened I’ve decided to do just that.

What do you think? Could it work? Let me know how you feel by opening an Issue by clicking the link in the footer.
