MicroID Module for Drupal

Via Terrell Russell, news of a MicroID module for Drupal

I’ve been working with Tane Piper over the last couple days over IRC tweaking his improvements to his Drupal MicroID module (getting it Version .3 compatible).

He has implemented node-level and comment-level MicroIDs that appear both in the meta tags of the page and are then rendered into the node divs and comment divs directly via jQuery.
