Indeed, there is a painful lack of sites willing to consume an OpenID for authentication. (I agree that it would be a marvellous feature for LWN to do so.) > So far, though, other than the LiveJournal [...] and Digg, If Digg accepts OpenID logins, I can't find it. The only login form on Digg that I can find demands a username and password, as before. > there just aren't that many sites where OpenID can be used. The <https://www.myopenid.com/directory> OpenID Site Directory lists many sites and services where you can log in with your OpenID. It's harder to retrofit OpenID login to a site that has already built its authentication system around usernames and password than it is to simply build it in from scratch to a service while developing it the first time. So the sites that were *already* popular before OpenID became popular will have a much harder time integrating OpenID login, and so will be slower to adopt it. Some existing services that have taken the plunge anyway include <http://pastebin.ca/> general pastebin, <http://plaxo.com/> Plaxo, <http://technorati.com/weblog/2006/10/144.html> Technorati, <http://www.wikitravel.org/> Wikitravel. The result of this is that many of the best OpenID-login services are those that were built around the time OpenID was being promoted (and thus are younger and less well-known than comparable services): <http://ma.gnolia.com/> Ma.gnolia, <http://www.simpy.com/> Simpy, <http://pibb.com/> Pibb, <http://moodstr.com/> Moodstr, <http://jyte.com/> Jyte, <http://zooomr.com/> Zooomr, <http://micropledge.com/> microPledge, <http://issuesdone.com/> Issues Done, <http://www.ticketeverything.com/> Ticket Everything.
