Social Login

I have just installed  Social Login on this site, some of the authentication services, not surprisingly require a setup process, most of which I have not done.

One All has some good help pages, the following services do not require set up,

Blogger, Hyves, Live Journal, mail.ru, Open ID, Stack Exchange and WordPress

22 May 2013 : Problems testing with WordPress, I have asked for help here…..

4th June : Still stuck with WordPress, now need a WordPress blog owner to test for me. Big help form Claude Schlesser at oneall.com

The setup guidance for Yahoo, Twitter, Google and Facebook are very good easy to follow.

I have configured Disqus, but not yet tested it.

Next to test a raw OA provider; should be fun.

ooOOOoo

Now on ello.davelevy.info, not yet tested, I am using the same server account for all the subdomains. I copied the parameters.

Open ID

On the 20th April, I installed Social Login on this Wiki.

This involved me registering the sites with http://www.oneall.com/. This points towards open-id, and I have discovered these links,

  1. http://openid.net/
  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenID

and this, below which talks about how to run an open id server, since I if not you, am losing trust in the big boys.

P2P DNS

Looking at DNS and the attempt to P2P it.

Peter Sunde launched a project, reported at Computer World in an article called “P2P DNS to take on ICANN after US domain seizures”

It seems to have got stuck. This article dated 18 Oct 2011 and called Continuing the Distributed DNS System on Slashdot has some pointers. See also P2P-DNS taking control of the Internet  at memeburn.com.

The nearest successor seems to be namecoin, see http://namecoin.info/ , http://dot-bit.org/Main_Page & its wikipedia page

While researching this I came across a page on alternate roots at Wikipedia.
