O'Reilly's big mistake

Posted by Kirby Turner on April 13, 2004

I have always been a big fan of O’Reilly. The books are great, the web sites are useful, and Safari is my favorite. But after O’Reilly’s attempt to implement a single sign on for all their sites I am left with multiple user profiles, one for O’Reilly sites and one for my Safari account which I can now only access through a different URL. Having multiple accounts is not exactly single sign on in my opinion.

And I’m still fuming over not being able to access Safari for more than 24 hours. Unfortunately I really needed access yesterday too.

I’m very surprised that a company like O’Reilly has let something like this happen. I have always thought the company was better than that. Hopefully improvements will come soon now that lessons have been learned.
