OpenID

Today I listened to Episode 4 of This Week in Google. I followed the link in the show notes to Gina Trapanis tip of the week and installed the Firefox add-ons mentioned there. On her Smarterware blog I saw that I could log in using OpenID. On the OpenID website, they say:

Can't remember your passwords? Tired of filling out registration forms?

OpenID is a safe, faster, and easier way to log in to web sites.

Sounds good, doesn't it.

So now I am hosting my own OpenID identity on my web site using phpMyID and am starting to use it around the net.

I also installed the WordPress OpenID plugin on my blog. So now, anyone can log in to this blog or leave comments using OpenID.
