IndieAuth: Sign in with your domain name
Mar 18, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here we go: "This is an IndieAuth login prompt. To use it, you'll need to:

  • Add a link on your home page to your various social profiles (Twitter, Github, etc) with the attribute rel="me"

  • Ensure your profiles link back to your home page.

Read the full setup instructions." From thwe web page: "IndieAuth is part of the Indie Web movement to take back control of your online identity. Instead of logging in to websites as 'you on Twitter' or 'you on Facebook', you should be able to log in as just 'you'. We should not be relying on Twitter or Facebook to provide our authenticated identities, we should be able to use our own domain names to log in to sites everywhere." See also RelMeAuth.  I should note that this doesn't work for me, and I'm pretty sure I've followed the instructions correctly. #indieweb
