So what I’ve been dying to talk about for ages is finally in the open. Yahoo is going to be an OpenID 2.0 provider. This news is big. On 30th January Yahoo will make their OpenID provider a public beta.
We, of course, have a developer page about OpenID. It’s a bit basic right now, but I’m sure that’ll improve when we go live.
One thing that really works for me is that both yahoo.com and flickr.com can be used as your ID provider, but most especially some magic at the Yahoo end means users won’t have to remember a URL, just yahoo.com or flickr.com. Sweet.

Well done to the Yahoo! membership team.
