What's wrong with OpenID? - Quora
"The short answer is that OpenID is the worst possible "solution" I have ever seen in my entire life to a problem that most people don't really have. That's what's "wrong" with it."

Google Profiles Turn Into OpenIDs
"As part of its push to go more social, Google has been attempting to unify its various account profiles into one Google Profile. And now it’s more useful. Google’s Brad Fitzpatrick has just tweeted out that Google Profiles can now be used as OpenIDs.

Facebook in 2010: no longer a walled garden - O'Reilly Radar
"My prediction is that by the end of the year Facebook will become the most open social network on the social web. I believe that not only have they now found business value in doing so, but also truly believe that the next phase of their mission, "to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected" requires that they do so. This means that anyone building a business based on the notion that Facebook will remain a walled garden and won't adapt - as was true with traditional media when blogging came about - will have their world turned upside down this year. Disagree if you like, but my second argument is that if Facebook does not seriously embrace these ideas this year that their current position of dominance will be usurped."

Soon it will be time to start over, again (Scripting News)
"So the new folks, freshly funded, hire lots of people, young’uns like themselves who are doing it The New Way. They ship some products & while the users are happy & excited about all the cool new things they can do with the new generation, now that they’re freed of the limits of the previous one, they still want all the features they had come to expect in the old days. No problem! The new companies hire more people & they add all the features of the old generation. Feature wars follow, and the users get bored & a new generation of techies comes along, takes a look at the current stack, finds it too daunting (rightly so) & decides to start over from scratch. Round & round & round we go...The trick in each cycle is to fight complexity, so the growth can keep going. But you can't keep it out, engineers like complexity, not just because it provides them job security, also because they really just like it."

The End Of Online Anonymity - ReadWriteWeb
"The truth is, giving up our online anonymity may not be all bad - we'll have a convenient, portable friend graph, for example. We can burn our notebook filled with our usernames and passwords. Our search data will be easily accessible from one place. But for the convenience of a simple login, searchable personal data and web history, and social networks filled with friends, we'll have exchanged a bit of who we are in the process. We'll pay for our services on the new internet with our identity and personal information. When the companies we sold ourselves to use it for their own benefits, our outrage will come too late. We'll only have ourselves to blame."

Obama Puts Under Creative Commons - ReadWriteWeb
"Last week Barack Obama's Presidential transition website added OpenID login for commenters and now the entire site has been put under a Creative Commons license. These concepts are no longer just the dreams of "crack-pot fringe case" advocates - they're the official policy of the US President Elect."
