It was 2 years ago at Northern Voice that I got into some identity management issues. I liked the OpenID and hoped it would go somewhere – hasn’t yet. It is so bad now I need software to keep track of passwords for my software. I haven’t cateloged them all – but I’m at about 152 username/password combos. And that is for sites used in the last 4 months.
Despite some decent uptake from Yahoo, Facebook, it really hasn’t gotten any bigger. Yet the plethora of online tools have kept building.
