Newsweek embraces trackback

Newsweek has embraced trackback. Working with Technorati, they are providing a list of the most-blogged stories on their site, as well as trackback links on stories themselves.
This is something of a revolution–if a couple of years late. Other publishers should copy it. I’ve been ranting for more than a year that news organizations are ignoring the amazing metainformation that bloggers create for free.
There are still some kinks to be worked out. In checking out these pages, I noticed that some loaded very slowly, while the message “Waiting for” appeared at the bottom of my browser window.
