Interviewing Simon Willison about OpenID

March 25, 2008 at 11:35 pm 1 comment

During the recent Webstock conference, I had the opportunity to interview Simon Willison about OpenID. This is now available online (windows streaming video, MP3, about 15 minutes).

I found talking with Simon really interesting, whether it was about Webstock, New Zealand, or OpenID. He had some great insights into the current state of play, including the challenges and opportunities facing OpenID. I particularly liked his emphasis on looking at OpenID in the context of decentralised social networking and the fit with OAuth and OpenSocial.

Though, I did think Simon did well to duck the question about national-level implementation of OpenID (a la Estonia).

As a first go at video interviewing, it was certainly a great experience for me. But I’m clearly no John Campbell so I guess I’ll have to keep my day job…
