OpenID (almost) going Mainstream!

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 1200677274

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 spread all over the internet?
