Yes, there’s a lot going on in my personal space, and I have regularly encountered a moment where I thought: I should blog about this. But when you’re busy, you’re busy – and in my case, that means: no time to blog. So: sorry, you’re missing out on a few things. But with time flying as it does these days, I limit myself to essentials. Here’s a tool (or better: the specification for tools) that may well hold one of the keys for many future web applications, when combined with OpenID: OAuth. OAuth essentially allows users, like you and me, to create “tokens” linked to our identy; other systems (or people) can use that token for a specific purpose in a specific context and a specific timespan to do what we allow them to do – without giving away our identity or password.
