Login to other services with Technorati. Technorati are now an OpenID provider. I’d much rather they were a consumer though; at the moment you can claim your blog with OpenID but you can’t log in to your Technorati account with an OpenID from elsewhere. # 26th December 2006, 8:41 pm

OpenID screencast

OpenID’s biggest problem is its learning curve. Using it as actually really simple, but if you’re not technical the amount of stuff you have to know before you can understand it is enormous.

What I’m excited about, post-conference edition

Wow, I’ve had a really busy month. I’ve attended (and spoken at) BarCamp London, Media in Transition, d.Construct, RailsConf Europe, Euro Foo and EuroOSCON. All were excellent, and each one nicely complemented the others. I’m exhausted. I think my brain is full.
