CLTV26: EuroPython 2007 – Simon Willison about OpenID (Keynote)


Simon Willison gave this year’s first keynote at the EuroPython 2007 in Vilnius, Lithuania. He did not talk that much about Python this time but instead about OpenID and how it might change how we use the web in the future. He was also encouraging esp. framework developers to include OpenID support in their frameworks (as a sidenote, Plone 3 will ship with OpenID support and just got the bounty from the OpenID foundation).
