Digg to support OpenID

Things are just going crazy for OpenID…Digg just announced that it is planning to support OpenID. While its not that big a deal in raw numbers (see our coverage of AOL announcement, which is far bigger in terms of sheer numbers), it is a pretty big deal in terms of buzz and the demographic group it effects and therefore could have a pretty significant effect of the adoption of OpenID.

It looks like the OpenID solution is snowballing…I don’t want to sound a pessimistic note but I just hope the community figures out the solution to the phishing issues (see our analysis here) before too late.
