No one wants to give up my identity. Everyone wants to own a piece of me. My bank, my brokerage, Google, Yahoo, my Blog, Amazon, Microsoft, IT Conversations, Podshow, Crazy Egg, and many others too numerous to mention all want to own a little piece. But ask any of them if the “me” they own is that same “me” that the others own and you’ll draw a blank stare. Am I all those different me’s? Or am I a single me splintered and inscribed in a thousands closed systems?
Technorati accepts Open ID. Why can’t I log in to my bank with user asserted credentials?
