Universal Widget: Byzantine routers made of clockwork

Blogging platforms it seems to me, are currently like a 1,000 different networks where connections are made, are possible and obviously happen but appear to be made by the equivalent of Byzantine routers made of clockwork. Where is the easy synchronisation between blogs, so that when I hop from one propriety platform and another I can seamlessly connect? I can use Disqus on some sites but not on others and while Euan Semple speaks of Typepad Connect as a way forward, will it work here? And also, what of communities: if there’s a community of visitors on one blog will it, or I, appear elsewhere?

Interesting to think of what a Universal Widget might be, a sort of Remote 2.0 that works across all sites and platforms and even works the TV too…
