a great BBAuth Hack

Whether it's a clock or a fuzzy little chumby, we love it when someone uses our APIs to make something novel.

It comes as no surprise that the latest hack to come across the YDN radar is from one of our favorite hackers: Simon Willison. In Use your Yahoo! account as an OpenID he describes what he's built. But if you've played around with BBAuth before, you can probably guess how it works already. :-)

Yup, serves as a bridge from BBAuth to OpenID. Not only that, it offers your own name in DNS space (I claimed Jeremy, for example) and an anti-phising monster.

Well done, Simon.
