In a vain hope of getting some real talk on digital identity without all the

____ANTI MS _____

rhetoric please be aware its not just

 hailstorm / passport that "threatens digital identity"


If it really does "threaten digital identity"

To comment directly :

"What is the difference? If Microsoft knows everything about
everyone--and the information being collected by Passport and My
Services make that look quite likely--the company could still be
constrained in how it uses that information by laws or corporate
privacy policies. That presupposes, however, that Microsoft is
actually in control of the information it has collected."

As apposed to say VISA/MasterCard/Switch/American Express/ et. al ?

We seem to trust these?  And yet we signed our rights to the data over to
