via Peter Saint-André, I discovered,
MicroID is a new Identity layer to the web and Microformats that allows anyone to simply claim verifiable ownership over their own pages and content hosted anywhere. The technology is radically simple and capable of empowering new and unique meta services with only minor effort.
It’s so simple (the process) it will make you wonder why you didn’t think of it first.
Whats REALLY COOL, yet purely coincidental, is that this same general area (although the above is even more simple, and therefore, better) can be directly applied to the idea I blogged about a few months ago in regards to adding a layer of simple, short-term, data contract-based security to the mix.
In related news, Did anybody else just feel that?
Don’t worry… you will ;)
