Subject: [development] A New Feature for Blogging Platforms


HTML Working Group,
Drupal Developer Team,
WordPress Developer Team,

Greetings. I have a new feature idea for blogging platforms. The idea is for
bloggers to be able to indicate, per article, organizations' websites and
web services to ping with article events, in addition to pinging blog search
engines with each articles' events. As envisioned, the feature would be
configurable on blogging platforms and then for each blog article.

Bloggers could indicate organizations, on a configuration page, by means of
web service URL's. A web service function response could include
organizational metadata for blogging platforms' user interfaces. Then, per
article, bloggers could indicate which organizations that each blog article
is pertinent to. Organizations could then receive pings for article events,
from numerous bloggers, and link to or present the blog articles from
numerous bloggers on their websites.

A use case is consumer advocacy. Consumer advocacy groups, e.g. the Better
Business Bureau, can each independently spider and index blog articles and
tweets, where blog articles and tweets can have keywords or folksonomic
tags, e.g. "bbb" or "#bbb", and can each utilize that data and make that
data available on their websites. With the described feature of indicating
organizations to ping, per article, consumers', parents', teachers', and
scholars' commentary, feedback, and opinion, about digital textbooks and
curriculum, for example, could be specifically routed, as indicated by each
blogger, empowering bloggers and adding value to numerous organizations'
websites including those of consumer advocacy groups, teachers' and
education-related organizations.

In addition to the use of hyperlinks for indicating discussed items, for
example opening digital textbooks to specific pages and object
configurations (http://idpf.org/epub/linking/cfi/epub-cfi.html,
http://www.w3.org/TR/media-frags/), some bloggers might want to also utilize
hypertext quotes or multimedia clips in their blog articles during fair use

The new blogging platform feature of pinging one or more organizations as
indicated per article could additionally benefit scholarly and scientific
communication. Scholars and scientists with blogs could utilize the new
feature to indicate which scholarly and scientific organizations to ping for
specific blog articles. The blog articles of many scholars and scientists
could then be linked to or appear on a number of scholarly and scientific
organizations' websites for Web users to discover, read, and interact with.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
