How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that setting up an OpenID on my own domain, ginatrapani.org , would be a big hassle: that I’d have to host my own OpenID server software and that it would take all sorts of installation and maintenance BS to do so. I feel strongly about owning my identity online, mapping it to my nameplate domain, and actively choosing an authorizing party instead of just accepting the sign-in service du jour like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Google. Still, I never got set up with OpenID on ginatrapani.org because my perceived hassle factor was daunting. Instead, I used idproxy.net for my OpenID and put the domain setup on my “someday I have to do that” list. It meant that my OpenID was ginatrapani.idproxy.net instead of my own domain. Idproxy is a great service and I thank them for getting me started with OpenID; but still, I want my OpenID URL to be a domain name I own and control. Turns out I was dead wrong about the hassle. Setting up OpenID capabilities on your own domain name is a two-lines-of-HTML affair, and it’s finally done.

Year-End To-do: Audit Your Email Account Security

Year-End To-do: Audit Your Email Account Security

Two stories of online account break-ins this week: First, Twitter.com got redirected to an Iranian hacker page because attackers were able to get into the email account registered with their site DNS service . Second, savvy blogger Amit Agarwal’s Gmail and Google Apps accounts were taken over because the attacker got access to Amit’s secondary email address and sent a password change request there to get into the accounts. Do yourself a favor: Before 2010 is upon us, do a quick audit of all your most important accounts. Make sure your passwords are strong and remember: Never use inactive webmail as your secondary email account .

My New Book: The Complete Guide to Google Wave

My New Book: The Complete Guide to Google Wave

I’m tickled pink to finally announce the project I’ve been hard at work on for weeks now: my new book, The Complete Guide to Google Wave , is now available to read and share for free at completewaveguide.com . Anyone who reads my stuff or listens to This Week in Google knows that I’m a Google Wave nut. Yes, it’s a hyped, complex, do-it-all web application, but the sheer ambition is part of Wave’s appeal for me. Since I logged onto Wave’s developer sandbox back in June, I’ve spent a whole lot of time in Wave, figuring out how it works and what it might do–and blogging about my discoveries just didn’t cut it. So, along with Adam Pash from Lifehacker, I’ve compiled everything we know how to do in Google Wave in a book format at completewaveguide.com . I’m calling it a book, but for now it’s just a web site–with eight “chapters” and two “appendices,” free for you to read, share, and if we’re lucky, help us expand . The site will grow into traditional book formats, however: thanks to the team at 3ones , a PDF version of the book’s preview edition will be available for purchase this month. In January of 2010, a softcover print version of the book’s first edition will be available as well as an updated PDF




Note to Self: Don’t Forget to Use the Phone

Note to Self: Don’t Forget to Use the Phone

My friends who know what a telephone phobe I am will surely guffaw at the sheer hypocrisy of my latest post at Harvard Business Online, an exercise in self-talk wherein I declare that a phone call beats out email in a lot of situations . In my defense, for the last month or so I’ve been working on a project that involved several super-productive calls per week, so I have been practicing what I preach (a little bit, anyway). Here’s the whole piece: Don’t Forget To Use the Phone .

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Android users with Facebook friends who list their phone number in their profiles will love this: Brad Fitzpatrick offers a Greasemonkey script that exports those phone numbers to AddressBookr and offers to add/merge them into your Google Contacts. Even though this was posted last November, I just gave it a test run and it worked like a charm. Thanks, Nick!

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Been hacking away at a personal programming project, tentatively named Twitalytic , a web application that archives your tweets and mentions and gives you useful data about your friends and followers on Twitter. (Here’s some background on why the heck I’d ever want to archive the ephemeral chatter that is on the Twitter .) Anyway, after a few months I’ve collected a teensy bit of data , so I wanted to make sharing replies to my lazyweb tweets easier. To that end, today I added a public face to the app. Here’s the Twitalytic public timeline , which lists my most recent tweets and the number of replies each has. Click on the reply total to drill down into the responses to a particular tweet, like my tweet asking what people eat first thing in the morning . (Ha, I made over 200 people Twitter about breakfast!) That listing is the most basic thing Twitalytic can do. When you set it up and log into the app, you can curate replies and see other views of your data, like your least likely followers, your least and most active friends, your most replied-to tweets and more. For each of your friends or followers, you can see mutual friends, conversations you’ve had, and even what Twitter client that person uses most. If you’re approaching the 3,200 tweet mark , Twitalytic will also back up your tweets and let you export them into a simple text file. Here are some screenshots of the internal, logged-in only views. List your tweets by most recent, most replied-to, or back-and-forth conversations.

Coolpix S1000pj, la compatta con il proiettore incorporato

Funzionalità rivoluzionaria e destinata ad essere copiata oppure una trovata estemporanea che verrà presto dimenticata? Quantomeno innovativa lo è. Da Nikon arriva questo modello dotato di un proiettore LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) con una capacità luminosa di 10 lumen. Non so quantificare se sia tanto o poco, come metro di confronto ho solamente i lumen dei proiettori Post correlati: i programmi per il SonyEricsson p990 saranno compatibili con l’M600 e con il W950!

Registrazione in tempo reale per i domini .it

Registrazione in tempo reale per i domini .it

Finalmente la notizia che tanti addetti ai lavori attendevano. Dal 28 Settembre 2009 sarà possibile registrare in tempo reale i domini .it , grazie ad una nuova modalità sincrona che dovrebbe garantire l’attivazione immediata del dominio stesso. Un pò come succede già da tempo, anzi da sempre oserei dire, per i domini .com. La suddetta modalità sarà attiva parallelamente alla procedura attuale, che quindi rimarrà utilizzabile per un altro paio di anni prima di andare nel dimenticatoio. Senza troppi rimpianti sicuramente.
