Johannes Ernst posts a summary of the YADIS meeting held in San Fransisco last week (which I couldn’t attend in person but dialed in for). It was one of those classic situations where the common need to interoperate overcame the individual need for any one particular feature/flow. I am very hopeful for the outcome, which should be manifested in the form of a new YADIS draft from editor Joaqun Miller within the next week.
With this draft, YADIS will become the common capability discovery protocol for i-names, LID, and OpenID. That’s exciting.
