it was really fun, just a little demo to let people try out their OpenID logins and establish links to real life reputation and other stuff, but it turned into a bit of a playground. I think it has vanished completely because I can't see anything about it now.
I think there's something to be said about the whole LiveJournal era - where websites were a thing, but there were the outgrowths of central hubs - and the existence of people with friendships and stuff that exists, if we'd managed to add shared and cross site identity to that, it would have been a cooler space
I mean, that makes sense. I didn't mean as the *only* option, I meant it as a quick way to give everyone an option. Kinda like how so many people are like "here's an ISP email" and then get a GMail anyway.
I have an ISP email, but I also have my domain mail!
