Thank You, Google

Google, has brought us Google Web Designer.

A tool for people who makes webapps that proves three things:

  • First one: HTML5 is Turing compliant
  • Second one: You can deploy complex mobile apps using only HTML5, Javascript, CSS, and - of course -  XML.
  • Third one: Stay focused on Design.


It's in beta, But still for this beta: Thank you, Google.

Note from the editor: I do not work for Google Inc., and I have no comercial relationship beyond the use of their fabulous tools. This is a sincere article.

In Memory of Jef Raskin

Without a doubt, Jef Raskin, might be writhing in his grave, as a passionate music maker he was.

Music is the only thing that appeals to all of us. A Minuetto is, still in our darkests times, a minuet. Everybody should know that. Coders and marketers above all.

Soundtrack for a Rainy day

Let's Play

Facebook is godsent for people who love to talk, but have nothing to say. Here is a network that doesn’t care about originality or the quality of content. In the time it takes to create something original, they could share dozens of things.

Larry ends OpenID

Today, in my inbox.
I wanted to reach out personally to let you know that we have made the decision to end of life the myOpenID service. myOpenID will be turned off on February 1, 2014

In 2006 Janrain created myOpenID to fulfill our vision to make registration and login easier on the web for people.

 Since that time, social networks and email providers such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn and Yahoo! have embraced open identity standards.

 And now, billions of people who have created accounts with these services can use their identities to easily register and login to sites across the web in the way myOpenID was intended. 

By 2009 it had become obvious that the vast majority of consumers would prefer to utilize an existing identity from a recognized provider rather than create their own myOpenID account. 

As a result, our business focus changed to address this desire, and we introduced social login technology. 

While the technology is slightly different from where we were in 2006, I’m confident that we are still delivering on our initial promise – that people should take control of their online identity and are empowered to carry those identities with them as they navigate the web. 

For those of you who still actively use myOpenID, I can understand your disappointment to hear this news and apologize if this causes you any inconvenience. 

To reduce this inconvenience, we are delaying the end of life of the service until February 1, 2014 to give you time to begin using other identities on those sites where you use myOpenID today.

 Speaking on behalf of Janrain, I truly appreciate your past support of myOpenID.
Thank you very much, Larry, for the good moments and the initiative.
