OpenID is Only Good in Theory
I got myself a shiny new OpenID account from Yahoo, and so far it only worked on 1 out of 3 sites:
- Pragmatic Bookshelf – yep, worked
- DZone – nope, does not work
- Blogger – nope, does not work
Perhaps one day the whole world will come together and agree to implement the spec in a consistent way so OpenID accounts work everywhere. But so far, I’m not even marginally impressed.
