staynalive.com

Are you chasing your blog audience away?

thenextweb.com
I was reading a blog post today and was wanting to comment when the site asked me to register. To register? Create an account? That’s a bit 2000, not 2010. ZDNet’s Tom Forenski will never know what I thought about his piece on corporates and social networking. The registration hurdle...

Unlike newly registered accounts, existing third-party accounts have rich...

Thinking about how to rebuild OpenID on top of OAuth 2.0

daveman692.livejournal.com
I mentioned this idea back in March when I was working on an early draft of OAuth 2.0. The past few days I've actually started to write a modest proposal. Quoting from http://openidconnect.com/: Did you know that OpenID was last updated in 2007? Since then we've seen OAuth 1.0 and...

evan: @recordond juggling consumer keys for each IdP seems like a pain. Most likely, RPs will only use a handful of IdPs. So: you've take the "Open" out of "OpenID". That sucks.
