JanRain: “Internet-scale identity services with OpenID”
Identity brings Microsoft and Internet 2.0 together | The Register: “Is Open ID the glue we need?

Microsoft isn’t the only one taking an interest in Open ID. AOL, Yahoo! and Digg have all announced they’ll accept Open ID credentials as a way of identifying users online.
But for Microsoft this is more than just a technology partnership. It could be the first real step towards creating the multi-platform, multi-system identity metasystem. Oh, and it could mean one less headache for web developers too.
Mary Branscombe asked San Jose’s Redevelopment Agency’s Kim Cameron to identify why these deals matter.”
There is an discussion of OpenID in this Digg entry. Interesting for peoples views on the merits and weaknesses. The actual entry is about Digg announcing support for OpenID.
