First Post

I've been lazily posting to my own site for the last year or so and until now didn't bother looking into getting a Blogger blog. So this is a trial to see:

  1. If being on blogger exposes me to a wider audience
  2. If I prefer the funky interface to FTPing static HTML

I also wanted to reserve my usual username as I've done with other up and coming trendy services such as Skype, Flickr and Eventful (aka EVDB).

I wish we'd get our act together and settle on a secure single login that can be shared across websites. Like Microsoft Passport (has anyone implemented this using non-MS tools e.g. PHP?). Google have their own user authentication which is shared across Gmail, groups, alerts, Froogle, Orkut and their personalizable home page. Not sure I want any single sign-on system to be based in the USA though, lest dubya spies on me!

Yes, I'm looking forward to OpenID myself. It lets me host my own identity server and use that as a login.
