OpenID Guerrillas Day Two.

OpenID Guerrillas Day Two.

OpenID Guerrillas Day Two.

Yes, we missed a week. Last Thursday was a long standing members leaving do, so Paul and Colin snuck out to work on their drinking skills, rather than our OpenID implementation. I can't say I blame them Smiley Today we have been joined by Tamlyn Rhodes, one of our web portal developers. He is going to be providing his jQuery and Usability experience to the group. I think I really only need a good content writer and web designer to complete the crack squad. So, a quick update on what we've looked at today Paul unfortunately opened a 'can of worms' (tm) in his day job so couldn't join us. He assures me that he'll be available next week! Tam has been checking out AOL, Yahoo, myopenid.com; HighriseHQ, CNN political markets, ma.gnolia and Plaxo, all of whom have an implementation of OpenID. He'll provide an update on what he's seen tomorrow! Colin, although looking a bit tired after his Community site upgrade slog yesterday, is planning a reimplementation of what we offer already on http://openid.beta.plus.net as it isn't working quite right any more. After checking out a few more implementations he's decided that he'll use the OpenID Enabled PHP server again as it seems to suit what we need. Please let us know if you've any suggestions/feedback. He also sent me a link to OpenLink Virtuoso but didn't tell me anything about it... I might get an opinion from him on that next week! I've been writing this post, updating our internal docs and having a look for new news articles. I just spotted that Tech Crunch has an article about how Microsoft, Google, Verisign and IBM have all joined the group. The point about no one want to be a 'relying party' is interesting. I want us to be able to consume OpenIDs for all our services (although ADSL authentication might be a touch difficult) as surely that is the whole point? I'm a bit of a geek, so I'll be wanting to host my own OpenID and use it on all my servers. That means I can control access to my data? Surely?
