Information Card Deployment Guide now live!

So you’ve decided to use Information Cards on your web site… Now what? I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just published a document giving step-by-step guidance to Web developers on what we believe are the best practices for doing this: Patterns for Supporting Information Cards at Web Sites: Personal Cards for Sign up and Signing In.

The document walks Web site developers through two different deployment scenarios: sites exclusively using Information Cards for authentication, and mixed-mode sites allowing the use of either passwords or Information Cards. Examples are given for site sign-in, site sign-up, and handling lost Information Cards, including suggested confirmation text for each of these scenarios.

We all owe Bill Barnes, Garrett Serack, and Keith Ballinger, as well as others behind the scenes, a big thank you for making this happen. Enjoy!
