|Blogger + OpenID

(Oh, and in case you thought I was implying this was my work... let me dispel that right away. I had like almost zero to do with this. But flattered by Eric Case mentioning me in the announcement post!)
Awesome. OpenID needs way more consumers and not so many providers.
yeah, I was surprised to find that Vox doesn't support OpenID as a consumer, just a provider.
You shouldn't be - I think that TypePad, Six Apart's blogging site, is also only a provider and not a consumer. In fact, LiveJournal is the only blogging service that I can think of that's an OpenID consumer. (Since anonymous comments are now disabled by default on new journals, and OpenID comments count as anonymous, even here I think you have to have a local account to leave comments on recently created journals unless the journal owner has changed the settings. Given the spam issues, I doubt many do.)
workin' on it. we definitely intend to add in consumer support on all our stuff -- it's in Movable Type already.
For what it's worth, when I signed up for OpenID
and began looking for consumers, I had no idea you originated the thing, or even that my LJ account was a provider.
I bought in to the concept completely independently of LJ or you.
You should be equally proud to know that RateAustin
is also OpenID enabled.

looks good now if only gmail accounts worked...
hopefully this is a stepping stone to gmail accounts
then hopefully I get to use my personality to purchase things and reveal what I wish to these "shops" allowing me convenience and security
Brad u r an example in more ways than three.
