After a period of downtime the new gravatar site has been released. It looks as if it has been developed in rails and utilises cutting edge web programming methods such as REST. In case you dont know the gravatar site describes best what one is.
A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80Ã—80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on weblogs?
This all helps for you to enhance your online identity, spanning across the modern world of distributed blogs and forums. Would be great if this could be used to integrate with authentication systems for forums and blogs. One gravatar account which gives you a login to all gravatar authentication enabled forums.
Maybe we will see something like this in the future?
