Chris Messina Explains DiSO and Discusses Initial WordPress Integration

I came across an interview with Chris Messina today in which he discusses DiSO (pronounced DeeeeeeSoooooooo) in detail. Along with the primer he goes on to say that he is currently working on the initial implementation to be done via WordPress Plugins.

Some initial functions include:

  • OpenID Authentication
  • Use your blog as an OpenID source
  • Discover friends services advertised on their identities
  • Authorize access to private areas via permissions

He also says that the WordPress version should release in a couple of months followed later by support for Drupal, Movable Type, Rails, Django & more.
