The Digg community woke up this morning to a new design of their favorite Web site. Kevin Rose and Daniel Burka announced the redesign as a step toward allowing them to add new features like Digg Images. (Big whoop! Geeks will be voting on their favorite lolcat. It’s nothing that exciting.)
I was kind of hoping that we’d finally get OpenID support at Digg but alas alack no such luck.
Has the excitement around OpenID fizzled out? It just seems like there aren’t many big companies with are following through with their support of the technology. It was kind of hoping that support at Digg would help to keep the torch going.
As someone who has many different projects hosted in a variety of 37signals Basecamp accounts, I was giddy when I heard that they had launched OpenID support. This makes it easy to manage multiple project sites with your single user id and password. It is such a glorious thing.
Who’s going to launch OpenID support next? I think there needs to be a certain momentum for it to stay in people’s hearts and minds. There is still no word on when Digg will come through on its promise of supporting OpenID.
I’d love to see GMail launch OpenID support. What service would you love to see implement it?
