This looks interesting - in a 'teach people how the Web really works' kind of way. WebHooks is a catch phrase for Web application development where notification are sent from theh source to the listener via HTTP POST, rather than the other way around via polling (which, as some have said, doesn't scale).

Somewhat related to my earlier post on how HTTP can be used as an alternate to XMPP/Jabber in a publish/subscribe scenario without too much problem or angst.
