As of this afternoon, InsaneJournal now supports OpenID authentication.
What is OpenID you ask?
-- OpenID is a new authentication system that will allow you to leave comments on other sites
-- You will be able to add, ban, or trust users that do not have InsaneJournal accounts
-- It will allow you to use some other off-site utilities that require you to prove who you are
Things will get much more exciting in the coming weeks as more sites start to support this. Currenlty LiveJournal supports OpenID and in the near future DeadJournal, Movable Type, WordPress, MediaWiki, Bugzilla, TypePad, TypeKey, b2, TextPattern, perl.org, and a bunch of other sites will support OpenID authentication.
In this update we have also added Tags.
What are tags?
-- Tags let you organize your entries into categories so that you and your friends can quickly find related entries in your journal.
-- For example you make an entry about what you did in math class today, you could tag the entry school and math and then anyone who goes to your journal can easily find any posts you make about school or just math.
