AOL Supports OpenID

AOL has added support for OpenID (OpenID Radar posts) to all AOL and AIM users. AOL's John Panzer provides these details:

  • Every AOL/AIM user now has at least one OpenID URI,
  • This experimental OpenID 1.1 Provider service is available now and we are conducting compatibility tests.
  • We're working with OpenID relying parties to resolve compatibility issues.
  • Our blogging platform has enabled basic OpenID 1.1 in beta, so every beta blog URI is also a basic OpenID identifier. (No Yadis yet.)
  • We don't yet accept OpenID identities within our products as a relying party, but we're actively working on it. That roll-out is likely to be gradual.
  • We are tracking the OpenID 2.0 standardization effort and plan to support it after it becomes final.
This is really big news. Now Microsoft supports OpenID in Vista and users of both AOL and (unofficially) Yahoo! now have OpenIDs. Google, will you become an OpenID provider next?
(Thanks Artur for the heads up)
