OpenID - getting closer
In an earlier post, I mentioned that I want to run my own OpenID indentity provider instead of using LJ, but that I hadn't found anything suitable.

It would appear I just wasn't looking properly, as I have now found a list of several scripts, including phpMyID. So, I should soon be able to log into all websites with "http://nathan.jones.id.au".

Of course, by "log into all websites", I really mean "log into all 2 of the sites I use that support OpenID".

Come on Wordpress! (I'm not holding my breath on OpenID adoption by MySpace or Facebook!)

Edited To Add: It's tempting to set it up whilst I wait for Theresa to return, but I really, really should finish up this bloody newsletter. Never get volunteered to do a newsletter - even if they give you the content - unless you do desktop publishing every day.

Don't forget about delegation. It's so easy. With it, you can use any URL over which you have control as an OpenID URL.


Thank you for the timely message! I hadn't read about OpenID Delegation. (Or maybe I did, then forgot.)

I'll probably still run my own script, so that I don't have to be logged into LiveJournal all the time, but delegation seems very handy.
