Podcast production and hosting site Blubrry.com today announced the addition of Open ID sign-in capabilities. Open ID is an open, decentralized standard for “user authentication and access control.” In other words, it allows users to log onto many sites and services with a single digital identity.
Blurbrry founder Todd Cochrane explains:
“You can now login to Blubrry.com with an OpenID account. Users that already have accounts will be able to associate there [sic] OpenID logins with their existing accounts. We wanted to make Blubrry even more accessible to listeners that are looking to find new content….
“So far as we know Blubrry.com is the first podcasting site to implement the OpenID standard and quite frankly we are pretty proud of this accomplishment.”
