Branding Cardspace

    So I'm, err, "finalising" my presentation for WebDD next Saturday and knocking up the Cardspace demos and slides. One of the nicer aspects of Cardspace is the common user experience (see that, presenter mode that is) when logging in.

    Except....

    There's no actual Cardspace logo. So every site will have some different way of indicating that Cardspace is supported. Every login form will look different.

    And I'll be damned if I can find any usable image to put on a sample web page which would nicely indicate a Cardspace capable site.

    Someone missed a move there I feel.

    If there is a logo, it's probably just the same as the other ones. Boring, simple and in Franklin Gothic Smiley

    You could at least use the control panel icon along with that (don't have .net 3 to grab an image of it right now)...  and Segoe is so totally the way to go nowadays Wink

    The DinnerNow sample application (www.dinnernow.net) uses CardSpace on it's login page and has a nice little icon image to represent it -- the full source code for DinnerNow gets released this week so may want to check it out.

    Interesting, but "this week" might be too late Smiley

    Yea, already got it grabbed, but it's just too small to act as suitable eye candy.

    "this week" == the 31st last I checked. It may still be too late but at least it isn't quite as vague Wink

    True and I always end up changing things 2 hours before I'm due to speak anyway

    Funny how the readme is an XPS. I ended up taking the grey head from the netfx3 sandbox (which doesn't work with the Firefox plugin for some reason)

    Hey all. We're currently working on a standard logo for "Information Cards". You'd be surprised at the complications involved in creating such a logo and protecting it from inappropriate use/abuse!

    Bear with us! Wink

    I just disabled a service called "CardSpace" on a workstation that was causing it to slow down to sub-Pentium levels. Any relation?


    So you admit you're running Windows? Oh and no, there's no "CardSpace" service. It's Windows Cardspace and it doesn't run by default and only appears when the cardUI pops up, then closes down.

    Why do I not believe you at all?
