I hate having lots of passwords and have found a couple of easy ways to minimize those required for logging into sites. About a year ago I was invited to access the features of RPX, an innovative method of logging into websites using openID and other providers such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and others.
As of today, I’ve activated the RPX sign on process to UrbanWorkbench, and seeing just about everyone who comes here has a Twitter, Facebook, Google or Flickr account, I’d like to see visitors signing in from these sites and the others that are provided in the interface, you can try it here. With the spam and occasional mindless comments that are left by some readers, this provides the option to require sign in for commenting in the future if required. This isn’t something I want to do, but it may come to that, and this provides some level of external accountability.
[ad#125-right]Try it out and leave me a comment, once you are logged in through one of these services you can add more personal details on the profile page too.
Additionally, if anyone would like to be added as a guest blogger, (are you burning to speak out about the environment and sustainability?) this will allow me to add you as an author.
