Simon Willison and I have been discussing Pingback, a better alternative to Movable Type’s TrackBack. I mooted the idea before, and we’re now working on implementations. Simon’s been working on a standalone XML-RPC server that can receive and catalogue Pingback pings, and I have now hacked Pingback server functionality into Movable Type! Sort of. I’m still working on it; code when it’s actually *done* :-)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
