OpenID (almost) going Mainstream!

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 2008/01/18

First, Yahoo (and Flickr) will be OpenID 2.0 providers starting 30th this month. Google announced that Blogger is now working a provider but only if you allow it. I really don’t know why they are asking people to check that damn checkboxes, maybe because of their enourmous database. There is not a list of trusts you can manage, for now you just can add one. At least they are already consuming openID. I wished I would not need a yahoo account to have my own space at Flickr. But that’s not for this moment yet.

Microsoft is getting late here. Wouldn’t they like to have the url id.live.com/alcidesfonseca spread all over the internet?
