OpenID: an actually distributed identity system

OpenID looks very promising and maybe WordPerss can play a part in it if the work is put into it.
It’s certainly something that would benefit WPMU. A community of users could post comments on each other’s blogs and bias any moderation rules in favour of the posted data getting through.
It doesn’t address trust however, but in a blogging community that can be solved in other ways (ie. when you register, the user has to click a url in an email.)
Interesting times ahead.

  1. Perhaps it could work in a group of bloggers sharing a trust pool. I’m sure I’ve seen some RDF papers about this on the w3 site. Still, very interesting stuff.
