I'm curious what the group thinks about the recent
surge in support for OpenID across the web and the
impact it will have.
1) Beemba - http://www.beemba.com
2) ClaimID - http://www.claimid.com
3) MyOpenID - http://www.myopenid.com
4) Many others...
These sites are gaining in popularity quickly and with
the announcements of support from big players Yahoo,
AOL, Microsoft and Google, combined with smaller
web2.0 celeb-run sites like Digg, OpenID appears to
what will eventually be the norm.
In general, I am opposed to anything that encourages people to use the same
id and password across multiple domains. The potential for complete
compromise of everything you have/own/are is too great.
