OpenID Commenting for Blogger!

We've just enabled OpenID signed comments for Blogger in Draft. There are a few rough edges still (which is why you have to enable it for your blog by going to draft.blogger.com), so we're looking for feedback. We're also working on enabling Blogger as an OpenID Provider, meaning that you can use your blog URL to identify yourself on other services.

What's particularly fun about this is that it's been a very collaborative project, bringing together Blogger engineers, 20% time from a couple of non-Blogger engineers, and last but not least some of the fine open source libraries provided by the OpenID community. Thanks all!

Essential Atom and AtomPub in 30 seconds

Atom is this: You have a bunch of things, or sometimes just one thing.  They always have unique ids, they have timestamps, and tell you who created/is responsible for them.  Oh yeah, if you can, please provide a short snippet of text describing each thing.

AtomPub is how to discover, create, delete, and edit those things.

Everything else is optional and/or extensions.

OpenSocial Ecosystem

has been... extensively covered in just about all media over the past few days.  The official site is up, and the video from the Campfire 1 announcement as well.

Obviously this is just a first step.  We're all trying to build a self-sustaining ecosystem, and right now we're bootstrapping.  It's a bit like terraforming:  We just launched the equivalent of space ships carrying algae :).

A key next step is making it easy to create social app containers.  It's not hard to build a web page that can contain Gadgets, though it could be easier.  Adding the social APIs, the personal data stores, social identity, and authentication and authorization makes things a lot more complex.  This is the part I'm working on, along with a lot of other people.  It's a problem space I've been working in forawhileontheside.  Now it's time to achieve 'rough consensus and running code.'
