Microrant: Basecamp needs OpenID. It’s already on someone else’s wishlist, but I’m going to put it out there for posterity’s sake. I work in no less than 8 different Basecamps — all with whack-ass URLS (x.projectpath.com, y.updatelog.com, etc) and different usernames, depending on who set it up and whether I had the time to go and tweak my username.
PBWiki implemented centralized identity — why can’t Basecamp? Better yet, why doesn’t it use OpenID and let me use one the personas I’ve already set up somewhere else? Seriously — this is a major hurdle for spreading inter-organization Basecamp use.
