> can you make a collective "thing" with pingbacks? Theoretically. ;-) One of the great things about pingbacks is that you can pingback any kind of file - not just a webpage. You can't do this with trackbacks. So, for example, if I write a post on my site and reference a post from your site, my post automatically pings your site to tell you that I've just "commented" on your post (the one I just referenced). Your site, depending on how you deal with pingbacks, can explicitly include a portion of my content as a comment or just a link to it. Of course, now that I say that, I realize pingbacks don't seem to be working right on my site... See http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1033171507&count=1 for more information on pingbacks.
