DayTripr and OpenID

I'm frantically adding demoable stuff to DayTripr in preparation for Demo Camp Dallas 1 next week. I just finished up a really half-baked integration with OpenID. OpenID is an important part of the "war against the portals"[1], but let's face it, no real user is going to log in via OpenID any time soon. But I couldn't help myself. The uncontrollable urge to implement is a hazard of being a technologist, I suppose. Next up: A Public Content Sharing proof of concept. Equally useless in the short term, equally fun to code. I am a weak person.

[1] Deportalization. Don't like that term, need a new one. Anybody remember Jefferson's Mosquito Fleet from American History class? Never mind, mustn't be negative.

I'm dipping my toe in the OpenID waters as well. Did you see Simon Willison's Yahoo proxy for OpenID authentication? I think that alone makes OpenID somewhat viable for a large number of people.
