Late to the party, where's the kool-aid?

Trackback v. Pingback

I just read Ian Hickson’s “whitepaper” on pingbacks vs. trackbacks. Very enlightening. This new interest in a three year old idea stems from blojsom’s renewed support of the spec. blojsom’s author and project lead promises to bring pingback support in blojsom in line with trackback support very quickly.

Having caught up with what a pingback is, and learning about the many assumptions made by trackback (and the equally egegious assumptions that violate the specifications of HTTP and X/HTML), I’m ready to drink the pingback kool-aid.
