Austin OpenID Mashpit
In Episode #47 of the Story of Digital Identity (seek to the 30 minute mark), Chris Messina says
What I would love to see at these events is a semi-coordinated effort to actually build and implement demo-applications that start to actually tease out the faults in the system.In Episode #47, the question was posed more than once "Is OpenID ready for E-Commerce?" Maybe the answer is "Who cares?"
In preparation for the mashpit at Cafe Caffeine, I've spent the past week meeting up with security developers around town who have been asking really good questions. Although Chris is especially interested in user experience issues, these conversations have been more related to web services built on top of the OpenID libraries. Those conversations and the sharing of some cool projects will continue at the mashpit.
