Technorati becomes an OpenID iDP

iDP you ask? Well, that’s the new acronym you need to familiarize yourself with… it stands for “iDentity Provider” and in the world of OpenID, is akin to a credit card provider like MasterCard or Visa — since they provide you with a card and a network that accepts their plastic. Of course, Technorati was already a consumer, allowing you to claim your blogs… and now you can use your Technorati profile URL to log in at other OpenID enabled sites, like Ma.gnolia.
