Just OpenID’d My Way to Blogger

Posted by Bob Warfield on December 20, 2007

Hey cool, I just had my first encounter with OpenID.  I was writing a comment over on Aloof Architecture and it offered me a chance to sign in with my WordPress account.  Worked like a charm and it felt great!

Kind of like being shown into a restaurant ahead of others because the Maitre ‘D knows you.

Let’s see more of this, it’s the way the web ought to work.

For the record, it asked for my WordPress blog name.  It then kicked me over to WordPress (which I was already logged into) so I could confirm it was okay to login to Blogger, and then I was done.  I had to option to approve for just the one login or permanently.

Just one more thing made simpler in life.
