I have just come back from a short trip, which has given me some space off work and had some time to start thinking about getting things done.
So, one of the very first actions is to get into Issues Done then realized I could not login as my OpenID server -- Videntity is either down or gone.
Stefan Brands wrote a good entry to discuss about the problems of and with OpenID. Do check it out.
The model of OpenID suggests a decentralized approach which arguably is its strength and at the same time its biggest weakness. The service is no longer dependent on just the service provider but also the external authentication service provided by a third party.
Ideally, if all servers are available, everything works in yours and the dreams' favor. But at this moment, I am totally prohibited to enter any of my sites registered under my OpenID. How bad it is?
