Argh! https://openid4.me does in fact work, but not in Safari on the Mac (not sure about windows safari)
This is probably the same issue that https://auth.fcns.eu/ has with Safari. There must be a trick to get this

I would certainly like to add a link to openid4.me to the paper, even if it does not make it to the official
version. So 3 short sentences for the openid para that allow us to give a bit more openid love. I buy the winner
a beer in Berlin - or if you prefer you get your name added to the paper.
