HTML Working Group,

Greetings.  A digital publishing related idea is for bloggers to be able to, per article, to ping organizations' websites and web services, beyond pinging blog search engines for each article. As envisioned, the feature would be configurable on blogging platforms and then configurable for each blog article.
 
Bloggers could add organizations on a configuration page, for example, by indicating web service URL's, and a web services function could return organizational metadata of use to blogging platforms and then, per article, bloggers could utilize blogging platform user interfaces to checkbox which organizations that each blog article pertains to. Organizations could then receive article event pings per bloggers' indicated articles.  Organizations could present blog articles, from numerous bloggers, on their websites.
 
A use case is that combinations of parents', teachers', and scholars' commentary, feedback, and opinion, about digital textbooks and curriculum can be spidered, indexed, utilized, and presented on the Web by multiple consumer advocacy and research groups, and organizations.  Hyperlinks can be of use for 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/) and some bloggers might, additionally, want to utilize hypertext quotes or multimedia clips in their blog articles during fair use scenarios.
 
While groups and organizations, consumer advocacy, parent and teacher, education, or other organizations, can each spider blogs or sets of blogs, bloggers can additionally indicate, per article, specific organizational web services to ping with article events. In addition to enhanced consumer advocacy, empowered communities, consumers, parents, and teachers, and enhanced educational systems, such technology could additionally enhance scholarly and scientific communication.



Kind regards,
