OpenID for blog commenting!

As per Blogger in draft, Blogger now supports OpenID authentication for post commenting.

I enabled it for this blog.

This is an exciting new application of OpenID. It's when a technology is applied in ways unforeseen by its original designers that you know it's reached some sort of tipping point.

Do you really think that authenticate with OpenID to add a comment on a blog was unforeseen by its original designers ?

I'm guessing Paul was trying to be a bit sarcastic. :P

Great !

But : "an exciting new application of OpenID" ! Timeos is right : you should remember that there is a time for joking, and a time to be serious :-)

Dave, I'm hurt that you would only guess I was being sarcasm. I thought we were good enough friends that you would KNOW I was being sarcastic.

You've changed man.
