OpenID: Do you Yahoo!?

Yahoo! has just announced that it would begin supporting OpenID 2.0 technology for both yahoo.com and flikr.com by the end of the month.

Yahoo!’s initial OpenID service, which will be available in public beta on January 30, enables a seamless and transparent web experience by allowing users to use their custom OpenID identifier on me.yahoo.com or to simply type in “www.yahoo.com” or “www.flickr.com” on any site that supports OpenID 2.0.

Full Press Release

With the addition of 248 million Yahoo! users, the OpenID user community essentially triples in size (going from an estimated 120 million users to 368 million).
