> can you make a collective "thing" with pingbacks?

Theoretically. 😉 One of the great things about
pingbacks is that you can pingback any kind of file –
not just a webpage. You can't do this with trackbacks.
So, for example, if I write a post on my site and
reference a post from your site, my post automatically
pings your site to tell you that I've just "commented"
on your post (the one I just referenced). Your site,
depending on how you deal with pingbacks, can
explicitly include a portion of my content as a
comment or just a link to it. Of course, now that I
say that, I realize pingbacks don't seem to be working
right on my site…

See http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1033171507&count=1 for
more information on pingbacks.
