I have some questions.
Firstly, who are you? Have you worked on any social-web related projects before? Do you own your identity on the web (i.e. have a personal URL)? Do you post content under your own domain? Do you actively encrypt many of your communications?
If not, with what authority/experience/motive are you proposing a “standardized standard” for social data? If you have not put effort into building and using your identity on the web, why should any of us who have care about your proposal, as it is unlikely to be relevant to the actual problems faced by people trying to implement this stuff?
Secondly, why is your wiki username socml? Making your username the name of the thing you’re proposing strikes me as odd, if not slightly arrogant.
Thirdly, have you heard of activitystrea.ms? Judging by your admission that you
“have not searched the web
Google say there’s a “significant” number of pages sending
X-Pingback — I'd like to see actual stats.
@cssquirrel “if” we have thoughts? You mean there’s a possibility we won’t?! My “thoughts” would fill a podcast on their own, but no–one wants to listen to me ranting to myself ;)

@sandeepshetty fab :) I want to get Salmon working so I can reply/fave/etc. from my own software but it’s bloody awkward. Currently in the process of publishing some ideas on how magic sigs could be more effectively used. In the mean time, Pingback FTW!
