We have written much about climate change and one part especially, global warming [here, here, here, here]. On the most basic level two questions are often mentioned:
Do humans have affect on the global climate and can we stop global warming.
Scientists for quite some time have already found consensus that we do have an effect on the global climate. For their own reasons politicians needed more time to accept that fact but recently they too publicly agree with the raw answer “yes”.
Thus, much of the “dramatic ” debate has moved on to the second question. The problematic discussions (and protests by activists) there I find are those that, because we recently found we really do have an effect on the global climate we are therefore master over climate change and can change or stop it at our own choosing. How much I appreciate our inventive power, I think that claim is wrong.
After big organizations as AOL, Livejournal, WordPress and Microsoft to name a few, now Digg follows support for open ID as well.
While very strong protection for open ID is needed to avoid a real HUGE hackers triomf, this development is really building the web to a higher level. Has Ideal and Paypal already confirmed their coalition with Open Id? And second life? The possibilities if this adoption rate continues are quite large to say the least. Radio Online has a small interview in dutch about it too.
Update: Reasons it rocks and sucks.
This is a follow-up post of this post.
