Letter to the editor/ecomment vs. blog post – Follow up

Following my post of last week regarding the best way of discussing or commenting the results of a published paper, now that we have access to blogs, twitter or facebook, I made my decision. I will start by the more traditional route, that is the letter to the editor. I am saying traditional route, but in that case, this will be an ecomment. This comment, which needs to be appropriate and to contribute to the article content (dah !), will be published on the journal’s website within a couple of days after the original submision. Hopefully, this electronic way will be more interactive than the traditional letter to the editor usually published 2 months after submission!

Maybe it could then be fun to continue the discussion here since only 500 words are allowed in that comment…
