At A Blog Around the Clock, the online community manager over at PLoS ONE tallies up the number of comments already posted to the first Journal Club discussion this fall, led by Jonathan Eisen. In just one week, there've been three ratings, each with a comment, one trackback, seven annotations, and four discussions spurring 14 more comments. While GTO pointed out that some folks weren't so happy with the comment feature's functionality, Bora Zivkovic says to be patient, as they’re still working out all the bugs (and to contact the webmaster if you encounter one!). Over at business|bytes|genes|molecules, Deepak Singh comments on the ultimate utility of Topaz being in the trackback feature, arguing that PubMed should add a similar feature "that allows you to see in real time (and without having to go elsewhere) about the universe of conversation around a particular paper."
When It Comes To Blogging, Trackbacks Are Important, Too!
