Open ID

I going to need to have a login system at the main site, and plan on using OpenID. Basically, users with an OpenID would be able to sign in using their existing ID, and users without would create an OpenID at timlytle.net.

OpenID is a distributed identity system, on other words it proves that you, and you alone, own the ID. It is not an authority or permission system. Check out this OpenID webcast to get an overview.

Oh, and Harry, the narrator has a British accent.

So what do you think? Kinda like passport, without being passport.
