NRK joins OpenID

NRK, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, follows in the footsteps of BBC and today decided to become an OpenID provider. The reason behind the decision is that:

“The growth in user generated material, interaction with users and increased flow across NRK’s various content platforms raises the issue of a single sign-on system and the OpenID framework -which is an open, decentralised free framework for user-centric digital identity (quoting openID)- is considered to fulfill most of NRK’s needs.”
