We were talking internally today about how useful trackbacks can be but how terribly confusing they are. One URL to link to the post. Another URL is required to ping the targeted blog. By the time I have switched in and out of windows and cut and pasted both of the URLs, I’ve lost my stream of consciousness!
As I’ve said before, blogging needs to become easier and simpler for the masses.
If you’re not sure what a trackback is, check out this post from Stephen Labuda. He does a good job of explaining the concept.
