how would a global author screen name work?

It could start out open, like it is now, then when someone discovers the news page () a author record is started for them if they are signed on with an author to a named group.  It would have this data (we might start using quads for this data):
  • author
  • news marker time
  • a place to enter a password (optional)
  • a place to enter a email (optional)
We could even then start a author within group record.  Though this may have some wierdnessess with unsecured names.

Note that under this senario we do not require them to secure their page with password.  Others could use the same identity if it were unsecured and they would of course share the same news marker.

If the author secured their name with a password, nobody else could use it.  Untill then it is open game.  But if sombody signs on to a group with some author name, the author table is checked and if it exists, and if it is secured with a password, then that would need to be authenticated in some manner:
  • perhaps by another cookie on your machine or browser
  • if that is absent, you would need to ask for in a popup or something

We may or may not want to have secured global authors:
  • Advantage for users:  collect global trust and reputation
  • Disadvantage for users:  must separately log in to that identity
  • Disadvantage for users:  must find a screen name that is not already in use
Discuss .... or write another item with a different proposal (might be simpler to keep different senarios straight if each senario had its own item) ...keep dialogue on each secario to that senario proposed.

Is a global ID intended in your scenario to work across multiple domains ?

Well strangely enough that was not the intention when i originally wrote this item.  Then after studying the kinds of things that are happening out there with global identity i started thinking that it would be good to use the trans domain author identity.

The way i defined the quads, 1941, it would not matter which identity was used.  The string i labeled "computer id1 session" me thinks would function the same whether it was retrieved from a fastblogit cookie or retrieved from a infoCard (or whatever).
