Its an ongoing battle to see who will win the war of single sign on across the web. Despite the early start of OpenId and the hype surrounding it there has been a formidable contender on the sidelines. Yes with Facebook’s launch of FB Connect there has been a flurry of new integrations. Its enormous penetration and ease of use makes it the obveous choice for aspiring web applications and start-ups alike.
Its for this reason Whaddado will be implementing Facebook connect as its primary registration and sign in app. In addition we will allow Twitter sign in due to the fact we are linking all accounts with Twitter its a simple second choice. Linked In connection may follow shortly after that.

There are lots of reasons for why we have chosen the Flickr API as our preferred image supplier. For one I love the easy to use API and we are particularly interested in the geo coding and places methods that could really benefit our community.
There is also lots of pre-exisiting PHP lib files such as ZEND and various Codeigniter libraries that will be able to interact well with flickr. We are also interested in using the swfuploader for a simple uploader to the flickr API.
Overall we found Flickr to meet all our current Beta needs and a great partner to use for future proofing. Expect to see full flickr integration at launch. Our new account will be http://www.flickr.com/photos/whaddado/, there will be lots of testing on this account over the coming months but eventually you will see user photos start to appear in here.
