TrackBack as an Internet Standard

Byrne Reese: Six Apart is beginning the process of submitting TrackBack to the Internet community and establishing TrackBack as a standard. To that end, Six Apart would like to invite anyone who is interested to join a provisional TrackBack Working Group by signing up for the TrackBack-protocol mailing list, and engaging its members in a discussion about the future of TrackBack.

Randy: I've long stopped sending trackbacks, because I found that the majority of trackback entry points were dead. That is, the Webpage contained a reference to a trackback URI, but the trackback handler was removed or didn't process my pings, most likely to avoid trackback SPAM. Assuming the trackback working group is more than a rubber stamp, this could be the revitalization of what use to be a cool part of the blogosphere.
