    Great introduction and overview. What we need is for more of the web to support this service as I’m still finding myself manually adding my avatar to all sorts of different sites and forums. Would be great to one day say that Gravatar is living up to its name as globally recognized.

    Michael, you know how to put on a show :)

      Of course, if you’d like to see more sites add support for Gravatars, feel free to suggest to your favorite sites that they look into the idea and add the functionality.

    Nice intro.

    It would be fantastic to be able to track people with Gravatar. I would love to see an rss-feed of all the sites where I have written comments (which were Gravatar-enabled).

    Maybe even getting an the opportunity to see if there was follow-up comments to the comments I’ve written on the web. Because I always tend to forget the places I write them :-)

    Nice video.

    Me and some of my friends are promoting the use of Gravatar on our websites as we do agree with the concept of what it’s for and it would be great to see this become something really big.

    Errrm… okay, that video was more of an infomercial. Let’s face it: Gravatar is just another webbug. A cleverly implemented one, but still, a webbug. I won’t use it.

    Your “Gravatar the Movie” link totally humorized me. Just HAD to click on such inviting 3 words.

    Imagine that – a grand MOVIE about gravatars – love it. I can see myself creating short videos about my blogs and sites and calling them,

    “Cdin-x the MOVIE” – HILARIOUS.

    I thought your idea so entertaining that will embed. You gave me a laugh and a smile, and that’s worth a ton.

    Didn’t know Gravatar as a webbug, but these days everything we do is connected to an IP, perhaps rightly so.

    Anyway, Gravatar makes my life easier. : )

    PS: What accent is that? Nice. : )

    Good video but the Gravatar doesn’t work on WordPress. All that comes up on the posts are a small red x in a wide box – the Gravatar doesn’t show up and yet the Gravatar shows up in all kinds of other places I visit the web.
