Open ID Login Available on Associated Content

Associated Content recently added a new login option with OpenID.

We're pleased with the addition, and please rest assured that AC users are not required to use OpenID. Your traditional login remains the same. We added it as an option for the convenience of the AC users who already use the OpenID service. OpenID is a handy, reputable program that is used by other organizations like AOL, Google, Microsoft, MySpace and Yahoo!.

If you'd like to learn more about OpenID, especially in relation your Associated Content account, AC Sr. Software Engineer Mike Scarborough has just published two articles for your edification. In this article, he answers the following questions:
  • What is OpenID?
  • What is my OpenID?
  • How does Associated Content use OpenIDs?
Mike specifically addresses OpenID security questions in "Is OpenID Secure?"

You can visit their website at openid.net. No login required.

Thanks for sharing this info with everyone. I read Mike's articles earlier and they were very helpful. :-)

Good articles. Already read them.

Now, is the recent email to the "Top 100 CP" legit and, if so, what was the criteria for the selection?
