You may have heard about OpenID . If you want to get started, you're at the right place. What is OpenID? Here is a screencast.

5 Steps for Early Adopters

1. Go to MyOpenID and register an OpenID. For instance, Bijoy is an early adopter.

2. (optional) All the cool kids are making their blogs their OpenID. To do this, link from your blog to the URL you just registered. This is called delegation and you usually do this by editing your blog template so that you can add two lines within the <HEAD> tags of your HTML. For instance, Bijoy might add the following to bijoygoswami.com:

<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />

<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://bijoy.myopenid.com/" />

3. If you're not already logged in, log in to the wiki with your legacy credentials

4. Associate your new OpenID with your legacy account here

5. Forget your old credentials.

What now?

Check out other sites that have adopted OpenID. For instance, if you already have an account at Stuffopolis, you can do steps 3-5 for Stuffopolis here. If you don't already have an account, registration with your new OpenID takes about 5 seconds. The Stuffopolis Wordpress blog also uses OpenID.
