  This week Jeff Panzer (Google) will be explaining the Salmon
Protocol to us. I'd recommend we all take a look at it [1]. It's based
on Atom, and is similar to pingback but with authentication. It
therefore allows the various fragmentary conversations on the Web -
such as comments on photos, user-status updates, etc. - to be tracked
and unfied. It's definitely got a buzz going on around it right now,
so it's worth our time to investigate.  This would seem to satisfy a
few of our use-cases. Are people aware of similar technologies, or
have any opinion/questions on this one? It seems again - the tricky
bit is in the authentication of identity and spam-prevention.

And I assume "salmon" as in conversations going "upstream" :)
