Did Kevin Rose and Digg forget about OpenID

The blogosphere is a little bit of a buzz with Kevin Rose’s announcement that Digg.com will expand into areas such as images and restaurants. This is great news but has the blogosphere forgotten the last announcement that Digg made but hasn’t followed through on?Back in February, Kevin Rose announced at Future of Web Apps in London that Digg was going to be supporting the decentralized single sign on technology OpenID. I understand that Kevin said OpenID support wasn’t going to be launched next day but it has been four months. FOUR MONTHS!

Having Digg FINALLY launch its OpenID support could help to keep the OpenID momentum going.

We need to start holding companies accountable when they make claims on features that will be forth coming.

Update: With my track record, Digg will launch OpenID support on Monday.
