Kevin Rose, speaking here at the Future of Web Apps conference in London, just announced that Digg will adopt the OpenID decentralized digital identity platform. Don’t expect this right away though – adoption will begin “later this year” according to Rose.
It’s definitely time to declare OpenID a winner and the hope for a single-sign on world a reality. This Digg news comes just after Microsoft and AOL announced their support as well. Yahoo, LiveJournal, and Wikipedia are among the other services that have previously announced adoption.
