Movable Type Trackback

Writes Dan Gillmor on an interesting new feature becoming available in MovableType (the software I used to write this blog): “TrackBack — this is about peer-to-peer communications connecting a) blog entry to blog entry; b) category to category; or c) entry to category. The idea is a threaded view of blog conversations — an automated and explicit equivalent to referrer log tracking. It generates RSS, which means you could use it to start one entry, a root distributed over several blogs and build a threaded conversation across a bunch of blogs.”

Need to understand this more, and also implement as part of this blog.
