I like webfinger for a couple/few reasons:
2. It got me using OpenID again, which I've had an account for forever but:
- I could never remember which browser I installed the certificate in.
- I could never remember the URL.
3. It can help to group a person's online identity together - at least the parts that you want to show.
But there's one relatively minor item I don't like:
We've often gotten an entire directory of web files from other company and have been missing .htaccess files - having an entire directory that's effectively invisible to many FTP clients (and servers) and needs CMS support will be annoying.
Why not just:
FTP clients/servers won't hate it, it'll be much easier to get CMS systems to work with it and they won't get missed when an entire directory is getting moved/zipped/etc.
Isn't that just simpler?
