Beer & Roll-Up-Your-Sleeves: Help out Legion of Tech set up for BarCamp

Justin Kistner writes “This Friday will be the awesomely fun Portland BarCamp. Most of the Beer and Bloggers will be attending this event, which starts at 6pm.

The Weekly Source Code 25 – OpenID Edition

Scott Hanselman writes “One of the things that is slowing OpenID adoption is that many people don’t realize that they may already have one. That’s what this little Javascript is trying to do by showing folks sites that they recognize. This way my Dad could login using Yahoo and it would make sense to him.

Please follow BarCampPortland on Twitter to get real-time updates during the event. We will also have a space on your badge for your twitter name, so if you haven’t yet joined Twitter, now would be a great time!”

Do what ever it takes to get to the top.

Miss Burrows writes “I’m on top, babies. Well, I’m on Alltop. It is a ‘digital magazine rack’ created in part by Guy Kawasaki. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is but I’d rather just gaze at his eyes for a bit.”

Updating WP-OpenID to support ID Selector

Bill Sodeman writes “WP-OpenID doesn’t support [JanRain's] ID Selectors yet, so I modified the code myself. The code is available in this ZIP file as interface.php. Installation is easy. Simply download my zipped file, extract the php file, edit it to include the ID Selection script that can be generated here, and upload the modified php file to your WordPress server at wp-content/plugins/openid/”
