I’ve seen a lot of it on TV (Yea, we get Swede Television in Norway you know :-) and it was a real nice and noble even.

I cant resist to add there is a Nobel Prize given in Oslo today too. You have red my post about it earlier:

The problem with that work around (I already knew of that one) is that it means I have to edit my template (themes) files, which:

1) I don’t think that one should be forced to do changes to the template code to get a thing like this work.

2) If I change template (which I plan to do more often than now) I have to make this changes again to the new template.

3) What happens if changes are done with how the OpenId work, will things screw up and I have to make other changes to the code snippet in the template file?

4) Read the security and spam issues they’re mentioning in several of the comments at the post.

“Basically, if someone can convince you to use your OpenID on their site, they can capture your login details if they’re sufficiently clever about it.”

“The big picture is that with Google jumping onto OpenID, it will become a huge target for spammers. Up until now, it wasn’t worth the trouble for spammers to setup their own authentication service. But if all you need is an OpenID to post a comment on a million blogs and not have it moderated, literally anybody can create one. No email verification necessary, no accountability.

I understand that it’s nice to have your blog URL visible in comments, and you’ve got a pretty clever solution. I’m just thinking ahead to when spam-through-openid becomes a problem (and it certainly will – only a matter of time). Your URL will probably get blocked from commenting at some point since it isn’t in any list of known and trusted openid providers.”

This can maybe be regarded as a very temporarily work around for some users, but I don’t recommend it.

…and I still refuse to use such a none-user friendly work around for something that should be easy and user friendly :-)

By: A. A. Mon, 10 Dec 2007 20:06:36 +0000 Very, very interesting. Not too many women winners then! I remember being very excited years ago when my husband happened to be in Stockholm during the presentations. Not that he saw any of it!

About the Blogger comments, I believe there is a way of getting the link to go directly to your blog and not the OpenID profile. I have managed to get mine to go directly to my blog and bypass both the blogger profile and the openID profile. Meg at Dipping into the Blogpond has the instructions that I followed. And she was extremely helpful when I messed it up!

By: Laguna Ling Laguna Ling Mon, 10 Dec 2007 14:13:00 +0000 So you’re Swedish? And that’s a lot of information about the Nobel Awards and Alfred Nobel. I remember reading a book by Irving Wallace called ‘The Prize’. Had to do with Nobel laureatures, how they win the prize and all about how the Nobel Committee selects the winners. I recall from the book a store called Nordiska Kompaniet where one of the characters worked. The name is kinda catchy and stuck in my mind.
