Blogger (the service that hosts this blog) just announced the following:
Your friends and readers can [now] leave authenticated comments on your blog using their blog URLs from OpenID-enabled services such as WordPress.com, LiveJournal, and AOL Journals, or with their AOL/AIM accounts.
So those of you who have elected not to have Google rule every single part of your online life can now be connected to Google anyway.
Those of you who do not understand what this post means, well, don't you worry your pretty little heads. There's nothing to see here. Move along.
