OpenID Connect

David Recordon, Website, May 16, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Recordon comes out with what is essentially a long-awaited merge of OpenID and OAuth. "We've heard loud and clear that sites looking to adopt OpenID want more than just a unique URL; social sites need basic things like your name, photo, and email address." This is the sort of engine that is needed to underlie a distributed social network (see below). This article can be pretty technical, but the first part is fairly accessible. If you're doing social network or PLE work, don't miss this. Via WebMonkey's nice non-technical summary.
