A boring update long-overdue gets pushed live prompted by Chris Messina finding bugs in our OpenID implementation.
On the one hand, I tout our OpenID stuff as being interesting because we do a lot more handling pops and being Ajax-y than other implementations I have seen. On the other, the result is a lot more edge cases and code.
The highlight of this update is the new changelog page where I will attempt to document all of the things that get broken.
After talking with Chris at the Graphing Social Patterns East conference, I am reconsidering another run at better and more interesting data dumps. Chris was advocating introducing some custom rel tags. I have avoided getting into the “creating standards” business, but, as a guy that seems to crank out a new standard every day, Chris was much more optimistic about the pending widespread adoption of the Cogstandard for modeling organizations.
He also thought I needed to incorporate uid stuff into my hcards and generally take advantage of the microformat marketing engine. Not that many places make 50,000 hcards of data available to people!
As a guy that confessed on the panel he sat on that his internet consumption starts with ego-surfing, I am sure Chris will comment shortly with even more standards-based ideas. He’s already debugging my other stuff, so that can’t be beat!
