Like WordPress and OpenID? wp-openid 3.0 to launch at Demolicious

I’m always saying that—with companies like Vidoop and JanRain here in town—Portland is the de facto hub for the world of OpenID.

And clearly after last weekend, we’ve got a lot of love for the WordPress platform, as well.

So where better to launch the latest version of the leading OpenID plugin for WordPress—wp-openid—than Portland?

wp-openid launch

Will Norris, the lead developer of the wp-openid plugin, happens to be in town this week. And, as such, he has just announced that he will be launching wp-openid 3.0 this Wednesday at Portland Web InnovatorsDemolicious!“, the new hip spot to unveil cool new tools here in town.

What does wp-openid do?

This plugin allows verified OpenIDs to be linked to existing user accounts for use as an alternative means of authentication. Additionally, commenters may use their OpenID to assure their identity as the author of the comment and provide a framework for future OpenID-based services (reputation and trust, for example).

So, if you’re a WordPress type who’s been using OpenID or who is interested in deploying OpenID on your blog, make sure to attend Demolicious! on Wednesday night at NEMO Design. Even if you’re just OpenID curious, I’d highly encourage you to attend.

Plus, as always, there will be some other cool stuff being demoed there, as well.

For more information on the event or to RSVP, visit Portland Web Innovators Demolicious! on Upcoming. For more information on the current version of the plugin, see wp-openid in the WordPress plugins directory.

  1. w00t! Looking forward to seeing Will’s latest brew 🙂
