AOL supporting OpenID [Feb. 16th, 2007|05:25 pm]

Yes, friends, AOL is now supporting OpenID.

I figured I'd better say something so everybody stops spamming me about it. :-)

Microsoft, AOL, Verisign, Symantec, .... anybody else I'm forgetting? Good times.

OLPC's Bitfrost mentions OpenID.

That's pretty cool!

It must be an odd feeling to have all these major companies back something you created like this..

MT provides and accepts OpenIDs, with plugins. (not on by default, iirc)

TypePad provides OpenIDs, but doesn't accept them.
