OpenID Commenting

After just two short weeks of testing on Blogger in draft, OpenID commenting is now available for all Blogger blogs. This means that you can leave authenticated comments using your blog URLs from OpenID-enabled services such as, LiveJournal, and AOL Journals, or with their AOL/AIM accounts. Here's more.


  1. What does that mean? Can you break it down stat by stat? ANOTHER ARCATA PhD.

  2. I don't know, I think what it really means is that those Wordpress guys who have avatars (like Wollf's above) can now have those avatars show up on their posts on other systems like blogger. I don't get any additional IP data. If I switched to Wordpress, I would get everyone's IP attached to their comment, which could certainly come in handy. It's very tempting, actually.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
