This will appeal only to the technophiles; I installed a WordPress plugin yesterday called Kramer (or at Kramer) and I like it so far – one of the features is automatically to show pingbacks from Technorati, even if the originator doesn’t support pingbacks.
For 99% of you reading that, it meant absolutely nothing, so here’s the translation: when the Houston Chronicle links to one of my posts, we will all know. It’ll show up as a comment to that post, and also on that sidebar on the right under “Recent Comments.” I expect for the next few days some very old pingbacks will appear there as people read older posts – I’ve already seen some old links going back to 2004 appearing. That’ll settle down in a few days, I think.
Kewl. Nice plugin.
