Typekey and MovableType

TypeKey is a new authentication service for the soon to be released MovableType 3.0. It will be open and free and allow other web applications to use this service as a central authentication service. It has already started some heated discussions in the bloging community. The reasons behind this system are based upon a desire to make it simple for weblog authors to allow open comments to be posted on the weblogs without this facility being abused by spammers. Whether it will be accepted, and whether it will actually work have still to be proven. Thanks to Bernie Goldbach (irish.typepad.com) for raising this issue with me.
